Choice and Alternative Energy
Choice Environmental is the first refuse company in South Florida to convert a portion of its operations to compressed natural gas (“CNG”) fuel. Compressed Natural Gas (“CNG”) is a fossil fuel substitute for gasoline (petrol), diesel, or propane fuel. It is a more environmentally clean alternative to other fuels (natural gas is lighter than air, and disperses quickly when released).
Choice operates a CNG service station in Pompano Beach, Florida with refuse trucks using CNG Fuel. Choice’s natural gas trucks serve residential and commercial customers in Southeast Florida metro regions. The company’s Florida service area encompasses Palm Beach, Broward, Dade ,Collier, Highlands and Lee counties. Choice has extensive operations throughout Southern Florida.
The natural gas used to produce CNG fuel onsite at the station is supplied by TECO Peoples Gas, Florida’s largest natural gas distribution company.

Choice’s CEO, Glen Miller, said, “Choice is excited to be the leading environmentally-friendly waste company in Florida, with the introduction of our new CNG-powered vehicles that will serve our customers in Florida. CNG trucks reduce greenhouse gases emissions by 25% compared to conventional diesel-fueled trucks, and are up to 85% quieter while idling. We have plans to expand our fleet of CNG trucks, which exceed 2012 federal emissions standards, and to deploy them throughout the communities we service in South Florida. We are very pleased to partner with Clean Energy, TECO Peoples Gas, Autocar, and E-Z Pack to do our part to ensure a clean environment, and to help reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil by converting to a domestic fuel source.”
