Animal and Food Processing Waste consists of materials generated in canneries, slaughterhouses, packing plants or similar industries, including animal manure when intended for disposal and not reuse. It also includes dead animals.
Due to the physical nature of these wastes and the inherent problems with their handling and disposal, they will only be accepted at the facility if a minimum of twelve (12) hours prior notification is given by the generator or hauler as appropriate.
Animal Waste must be double bagged.
