Sadly, sometimes our Streetscene department are asked to attend to a deceased animal.

Reporting a deceased animal
If you wish to advise us of a deceased animal to be collected, please complete our fly tipping form. Select 'Fly Tipping' then 'Animal Carcass' as the waste type.
Identifying a deceased animal
Having attended to a deceased animal, staff would scan the animal for an identification chip. If a chip is found, we use the online system to identify the owner.
We offer to either:
- deliver the animal to the owner
- facilitate collection from a local depot
If no chip is found, we will keep the animal for a few days. If no reports are received, we would then dispose of the animal appropriately.
