How do I dispose of a dead animal?

You may dispose of animals weighing less than 100 pounds at either of the transfer stations.   Notify the scale house operator when you enter the facility and they can make arrangements for proper disposal.

Disposing of animals greater than 100 pounds involves making arrangements with the landfill staff at least 24 hours in advance.  The transported animal must first travel to a transfer station to be weighed and have fees collected, then transported to the landfill for disposal.  See the Fee Resolution for pricing options.
