Recently, the city of Phoenix unveiled a newly refurbished garbage truck that had originally been targeted for replacement. Instead, the city partnered with DaDee Manufacturing, a local business in south Phoenix, to re-build parts of the truck. Each truck typically costs $250,000 to purchase brand new. By choosing to rebuild 10 trucks, the city will save more than $1 million.

The refurbished trucks are expected to last longer; the average life of a garbage truck is seven years. Also, the diesel engine emission systems will be retrofitted with new diesel particulate filters, which coupled with the use of B-20 biodiesel fuel, will reduce the impact to regional air quality.
