During a special event at the 21st annual Vehicle & Equipment Show, officials from the New York City Department of Sanitation welcomed the department’s Kenworth T370 hybrid, which was delivered in early May. The show, which is hosted by the New York City Parks and Recreation Department, featured the latest in light, medium and heavy duty trucks, fleet-related services, horticultural equipment, and tools. The event took place at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens.
