City officials say the two trucks are the only ones in the state that allow operators to pick up bins on both sides of the street or alley at once. "This truck will allow us to pass through an alley just one time," said Steve Funk, Plano's Environmental Waste Superintendent.

February 2011

On December 10, 2010, EBI awarded Labrie Environmental Group the contract to manufacturer EBI’s first automated compressed natural gas (CNG) Waste & Recycling Vehicle, the Labrie CNG Automizer.

This sale is a historic event for EBI, Labrie, Gaz Métro Transportation Solutions (GMST), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gaz Métro and the Province of Quebec, and is the result of a tremendous collaborative effort from all three parties. This is the first CNG Waste & Recycling Vehicle in the Province of Quebec, and the second for Labrie in Canada.

Labrie’s first CNG vehicle was delivered to the City of Toronto in the summer of 2010. GMST’s role will be to supply natural gas through Gaz Métro’s existing 10 000 km network as well as the required compression equipment to fuel the vehicle with CNG.
