Hello,

I am wondering if someone can direct me to the law that states trash services are required to take carcasses. For some reason this year my township has refused on two occasions to take them. I called my township and they said they were not obligated to take them. I was hoping the game commision would be able to help so I called them but no such luck.

I didnt know that they were required to do that. I thought it was the game commissons job to take care of dead widlife.

DONíT DUMP CARCASS!
Throughout Pennsylvania there is a growing problem with people dumping deer carcasses and other animal remains on public and private lands. Deer and other
wild game or furbearer remains are considered municipal solid waste and should be disposed of along with other household waste through your curbside pick up,
or at an approved waste facility.
The dumping of animal remains is illegal. This does not apply to the viscera discarded from legally-harvested animals. Burning
and/or burying of animal remains may also present serious health concerns and are not advisable practices. Contact your county recycling coordinator for more
information. This statement has been developed with the cooperation of the state Department of Environmental Protection, Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania,
Department of Conservation & Natural Resources and PA CleanWays-State.

yes, read that. I've been doing this for three years now and apparently a new private company is picking up the trash now. I informed them of this and they still said they aren't required to take it. So I can't just let deer pile up here and I can't get the Game Commission to enforce the rules with the township I'm stuck.

There is no law for the PGC to enforce.

Why did you inform them of anything. Just put it in a heavy duty bag(s), close it up tight, and set it out for the garbage truck. My refuge service has no idea what's in the bags...
