ACE Recycling & Disposal, based in West Valley City, Utah, has recently ordered a Mack LR Electric Class 8 refuse model to add to its fleet. The LR Electric will be used in a residential application in West Valley City or West Jordan City, Utah.

"Mack Trucks is excited ACE Disposal chose a Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle to further its sustainability efforts for their customers in Utah, while also meeting their own sustainability goals," says Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. "Mack is committed to providing refuse solutions that offer zero emissions and improve sustainability for the benefit of the environment. We are happy that ACE Disposal shares Mack's passion for a clean environment."

The Mack LR Electric will operate in a residential setting with a goal of collecting from about 900 to 1,200 stops each collection day. The LR Electric is expected to be delivered in September and will be equipped with an automated side loader.

ACE Disposal is a 40-year-old company with a history of prioritizing sustainability efforts. ACE Disposal says that they are the first to order an electric garbage truck and to use a CNG garbage truck in Utah. ACE also has xeriscape yard locations, solar power on its carports, geothermal heating and cooling, and currently operates 66 percent of its fleet on alternative fuel, equating to 155 trucks.

"It's always been important to ACE to make smart business decisions, while also maintaining a sustainable company for our people and our planet," says Zach Buhler, sales manager for ACE Recycling & Disposal. "We have a longstanding partnership with Mack for many years. Their quality is top-notch, and as soon as they had an electric truck with battery technology that could last an entire route, it was a no-brainer to order one."

ACE Disposal operates 370 pieces of equipment, including 250 refuse and recycling trucks, 50 support vehicles, and 70 transfer station loading and hauling equipment. Currently, ACE operates 21 Mack vehicles in its fleet. To accommodate electric vehicles, ACE Disposal upgraded the power coming into its facility and added an electric charging station.

Mountain West Truck Center in West Valley City, Utah, will service and support the vehicle.
