Collection of deceased animals

We will arrange the collection and disposal of dead animals from Council property (e.g. roads, footpaths and reserves) but not private property.

Private Property

The collection and disposal of animals from private property is the responsibility of the property owner. Animals can be taken to either:

  • ACT or Bungendore Land Fill
  • Pet Cemeteries/Crematorium

Remember to check whether there is a charge involved before taking the animal to the above locations.

Council property

If the animal is on Council property, Council will require the following information:

  • Location
  • Type of animal
  • Approximate size (small, medium, large)

We will endeavour to collect the animal within 24 hours of notification, 7 days a week.
