The City of Pickering's Dog Waste Diversion program regularly collects dog waste from all of the City’s dog waste bins where it’s converted into electricity, heat and nutrient dense fertilizer that is free of weed seeds and pathogens at a specialized facility.

See our 2021 report for how much dog waste is being converted into electricity within the City of Pickering.
