Landfills Taking Animal Carcasses

The following is a list of landfills in Nebraska, because the amount of mortalities that can be accepted may be limited based on the amount and type of waste they are receiving at a given time these facilities should be contacted directly to determine if they will take carcasses. Hauling carcasses to a landfill by a licensed carrier/renderer in a sealed truck is typically required. However, this requirement has currently been waived as a result of the large scale disaster in March 2019. For more, information contact NDEQ Waste Management Section: (402) 471-4210.
