Officials in a Phoenix suburb are considering a plan that would turn dog waste collected from an area park into a green energy source.

Don't pooh-pooh the idea before you hear it out.

The city council in Gilbert will decide next month whether to go ahead and have Arizona State University students design and create a "dog waste digester" that releases methane gas, the Arizona Republic reported.

The methane would run a street lamp first, and possibly other uses later.

Dog owners would put the remains in a biodegradable bag, drop that into the digester and then turn a crank to stir the mixture and get the process started.
