The NYC Clean Trucks Program started in Hunts Point and Port Morris in 2012 and in 2020 expanded to all five boroughs. This is a NYC Department of Transportation initiative that helps businesses upgrade their truck fleets to newer, cleaner vehicles that will have drastically lower levels of harmful substances emitted from engine exhausts.
Clean Trucks helps to make the South Bronx a cleaner, healthier place for local resident AND workers.
Clean Trucks provides funding to replace older trucks with newer vehicles with a U.S. EPA 2010 emission compliant, diesel or alternative fuel engines. Clean Trucks will also pay for diesel exhaust retrofits and replacement of older Transport Refrigeration Units.
As of June 2020, Clean Trucks has replaced 592 diesel trucks for the Beverage, Produce, Meat, Seafood, Leasing, Commercial Carrier, Waste/Recycling and Moving/Storage industries.
