Now, select County Hauling trucks have tablets mounted inside that map the driver’s route, video every pickup and make an electronic note of each to ensure excellent customer satisfaction. The technology solution called “Routeware” was a nearly $150,000 investment.

“We are a growing, locally-owned company,” said Alex Sulkowski, a director at County Hauling’s parent company Noble Environmental. “We are thrilled to be able to better service communities with the help of this new technology.”

“Compressed Natural Gas Trucks are actually powered by the same garbage they collect every day,” said Rich Walton, CEO of Noble Environmental.

Noble Environmental collects the gas from trash at Westmoreland Sanitary Landfill, cleans it, and creates the natural gas that powers their trucks.
