Replacements

Vehicle replacements are a fairly new endeavor for the Green Operator program and thus far we have replaced over 60 trucks with older engine model years with 2007 trucks that have the EPA approved engine technologies in them.  This has been a great success to our program and interest is at an all time high.  We have over 115 trucks in line to join the Green Operator community by replacing their trucks with newer cleaner burning trucks.  It is never too late to apply, so apply today!
