Other information

We will respond quickly to requests for the removal and disposal of dead animals found on the highway or any public open land. This is a free service.

Please do not put dead animals in to your household waste bin. If you have a pet that has died, take it to your vet for disposal.

We will not remove a dead animal from a private property.
