DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

The second compressed natural gas fueling station in South Georgia will soon open in Douglas.

City and Business leaders broke ground Monday on the $1.2 million self-serve fueling station that's been in the works since 2010.  Leaders say the station will bring economic and environmental benefits to the city.  

"It's a cleaner burning fuel, so it supports our efforts to provide more environmentally sustainable service collection program," said Don Collins.    

"We'll be able to maintain our cost for our sanitation services that we deliver to our customers," said Mayor James Dennis.       

TransWaste will use the station to fill up its garbage trucks, but it will eventually be open to anyone who drives a vehicle that runs on natural gas. Construction will start April 1st. The facility is expected to be complete in October.
