Report it

Dead animals

Dead animals will be collected and disposed of within one day from all public areas, highways and domestic properties. 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.

Animals which have died inside a domestic property (cats and dogs only) should be placed in a bag or wrapped in a blanket, and left outside the house for collection. We aren't able to enter your home to remove a deceased pet.

You can also take deceased pets to SUEZ for cremation (Haverton Hill Road, Billingham, TS23 1PY).


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

Alternatively, you can call the Environment Contact Centre on 01642 726001.

Dead animals on motorways

Dead animals found on the A19 and A174 in Middlesbrough are removed by Autolink. Please call 01642 560538.
