A++ REPORT CARD
Poop Patrol is helping to power homes with your pet's poop!
Watch our totals grow as we divert hundreds of poop bags away from landfill and convert the content into electricity!
We started this project back on February 1, 2017, and in our first year 22 tonnes of dog waste got turned it into usable energy and fertilizer through an anaerobic digestion process.
We have since continued this power-full program by utilizing EfW* waste management operations in Ontario. Thank you to all our customers for helping us continue to embrace a green approach to our business best practices.

*EfW = Energy-from-Waste: EfW Incineration generally entails burning waste to boil water which powers steam generators that generate electric energy and heat to be used in homes, businesses, institutions and industries. According to the New York Times, modern incineration plants are so clean that "many times more dioxin is now released from home fireplaces and backyard barbecues than from incineration.
