In order for a dead animal to be collected from a domestic property:
- The dead animal must be placed in a properly securely bag (not a carrier bag) and
- Left at the front boundary of the property (either outside or just inside the front gate)
- The animal will be collected within twenty four hours of it being reported
The Council will not:
- Bag dead animals
- Collect unbagged dead animals
- Retrieve bagged animals other than from the front boundary of a domestic property

Once we collect a dead pet, we will try and scan it to find out if it’s microchipped, and retain scanned information and collars for some time after disposal.
All dead animals we collect are incinerated and not stored in any way.
