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. We remove deceased wildlife from built up areas in the Local Government Area.
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.
If the animal is on Council property, Council will require the following information:
- Type of animal
- Approximate size (small, medium, large)
We will endeavour to collect the animal within 24 hours of notification, 7 days a week.
