Dead animals

There will be a change to your usual bin collection day on week commencing Monday 30 May, due to the extra Bank Holiday. Our crews will be working between Monday to Thursday and all refuse collections that week will move a day forward. View your bin collection calendar.

Dead animals will be collected and disposed of from all public areas and highways within one day of being reported.

If pets are micro-chipped, we'll make every effort to inform the owner.

We don't send teams to pick up smaller dead animals like rodents, reptiles, birds, or small pets.


To report a dead animal, you can use Report It.
