Turlock Scavenger, Waste Management Company, California

Turlock Scavenger, a waste collection and recycling company in Central California, has switched its fleet of diesel engine vehicles to run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ and is reporting significant reductions in maintenance costs.

Founded in 1935, Turlock Scavenger is one of the longest-operating three cart systems in the state of California. They provide residential waste services to more than 20,000 customers and commercial and industrial waste services to the city of Turlock and portions of Stanislaus County, California.


According to Bobby Hughes, shop supervisor for Turlock Scavenger, switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel has caused a significant improvement in the vehicles’ engine performance. “Since the switch to Neste MY Renewable Diesel, we have no maintenance issues. The trucks are running exceptionally well,” Hughes said. “In the past we were having to change filters often. Switching to renewable diesel has helped us save on routine maintenance costs.”

Hughes is also very pleased that renewable diesel’s clean-burning properties are improving the air quality of the neighborhoods Turlock Scavenger serves. “The switch was easy,” he said. “Doing our part to better the environment we live in is very important to us.”
