Poo Powered Garbage Trucks: The Future of Fuel?

September 1, 2022

It’s a first in Ontario.

A cow manure powered garbage truck has hit the streets of Hensall, Ontario, a small town in Huron County. 

These carbon negative garbage trucks are a part of a 6 month pilot program run by Bluewater Recycling and Enbridge. If all goes well, manure powered garbage trucks could be a mainstay in our municipalities. And potentially well beyond. 

In this episode of the 519 Podcast, we look at whether these, shall we say, poop powered garbage trucks give us a glimpse into the future of fuel.
