Environment



 

HazMat has always been committed to addressing environmental issues – which impact the wider community - and has earned numerous safety awards and certificates in our 32-year history. Most recently, HazMat was named one of HDT’s (Heavy Duty Trucking) Top 50 Green Fleets. Following is an excerpt from their article published in November 2015:

“The hazardous waste transporter has purchased 41 new tractors this year, 2015-16 Kenworth T660s, bringing its fleet size to 156. All sleeper tractors are now equipped with Thermo King TriPac APUs, with average fleet mileage rising from 6.4 in 2014 to 6.7 in 2015. Management actively monitors tractors with high idle and low mpg and works to improve them. A fuel bonus program paid out $175,886 to drivers in 2014. So far in 2015, through August drivers have earned $147,782 in bonuses. On the most recent 40 dry van trailers, replacing steel plating with Gatorhyde (a spray-on protective bed liner) saved 2,000 pounds per trailer, and trailer skirts and nose cones improve trailer aerodynamics. Using paperless billing for 90% of customers has reduced paper consumption by 35%.”
