What do you do with dog waste in the street?

How big is the amount of dog waste?
There are an estimated 70 million pet dogs in the United States and another 85 million in the European Union. The average dog produces about 150 pounds (68 kilos) of waste each year. That adds up to an enormous amount of poop! Obviously we can’t leave all this dog waste lying around, but what is the most eco-friendly way to dispose of it all?
