• Republic Services and Boise City partnered to bring the largest all-electric refuse and recycling fleet in the country to Boise, Idaho. These are zero emission trucks with Peterbilt chasses manufactured in the United States.
• Funding was awarded through the Idaho DEQ’s Volkswagen Diesel Settlement Program – Vehicle Replacement Grant to assist with the payment for five electric trucks and the necessary infrastructure that will place five older diesel trucks.
• The five trucks should be delivered early in 2021.
• The trucks can travel 75-120 miles on a single charge. This works well with high-density routes and use of transfer stations. Trucks take roughly 4 hours to charge using a fast charger.
