The council will collect dead animals in all public places, and we aim to remove these within 2 working days.

We may collect dead animals on private land, such as your garden, if you are unable to remove the dead animal yourself via your refuse bin. This service usually covers cats, dogs, foxes and badgers.

Our waste contractor are unable to enter inside of your property, and therefore the area must be easily accessible via an unlocked garden gate.

Our waste contractor are equipped with microchip readers for the scanning of dead domestic pets.

If you are concerned that your domestic pet is missing and may have died, please contact our customer services team via 01322 343434 who will make our waste contractor aware.
