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, heat, and nutrient dense fertilizer that is free of weeds, seeds, and pathogens.
Utilizing Ontario's EfW* incinerator and anaerobic digestion waste management operations, we are able to adopt an even greener approach to our business.
Beginning February 1, 2017 - We diverted over 1 ton of poop in our first month thanks to Cornerstone Renewables. 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!

*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.
