Dead Animal Disposal

Your Property

How to dispose of dead animals/carcasses:

  • Dispose of individual dead animals weighing less than 15 pounds in the household garbage.
  • Dead animals weighing more than 15 pounds (or large numbers of dead animals) should be taken to a rendering plant, veterinary clinic, animal shelter, pet cemetery or buried on the owner's property. 
  • If none of these methods are available, dead animals will be accepted at the Cedar Hills Landfill when accompanied by an approved Waste Clearance Decision Form.
