A one-year pilot program that converts dog waste into renewable energy and fertilizer.
The City is looking for resident feedback to help us plan for the future of Mississauga’s in-ground dog waste containers in parks. Take our online survey by January 14, 2021.
The City of Mississauga has launched a one-year pilot program that converts dog waste into renewable energy and fertilizer. A number of in-ground dog waste containers will be installed across City parks including the Animal Services facility.
The first containers were recently installed in the following parks:
City staff collaborated with Sutera Inc., to design a fully in-ground concrete container that holds dog waste for up to six weeks. Storing the waste below ground where it is cooler and out of direct sunlight reduces odour and means that the waste can be collected when the container is full. The waste will be emptied by a vacuum truck and taken to an organic waste plant where it will be safely converted into energy and fertilizer.
