A+ REPORT CARD
Poop Patrol is helping to power homes with your pet's poop!
Watch our totals grow as we divert hundreds of poopy bags away from landfill and convert the content into electricity, heat, and nutrient dense fertilizer that is free of weeds, seeds, and pathogens.
Thanks to the anaerobic digestion process developed by Cornerstone Renewables, we are able to adopt an even greener approach to our business. Diverting waste in this way is both environmentally beneficial and in keeping with the Free Waste Ontario Act.
Beginning February 1, 2017 - We added over 1 ton of poop in our first month. By the end of 2017, your pet's poop helped us turn over 22 tonnes of poop into usable energy and fertilizer. Congratulations and thank you!

Cornerstone Renewables philosophy is rooted in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from organics and providing solutions to the mountain of organic waste currently going to landfill, instead capturing energy, heat, and reusing the nutrients for growing crops. I couldn’t believe it when I got a call from Sue, the owner of Poop Patrol, asking me about adding dog poop to our digester process.
What a fun and progressive company! This is a fantastic sustainability initiative, and it turns out, a decades old dream of hers. A dream, we are very happy to make come true!
