Rendering, disposal of animal by-products Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Dead animals (domestic, domestic, zoo, circus and, in special circumstances, wild animals) and certain waste of animal origin, such as offal or catering waste from restaurants or canteen kitchens, must be properly disposed of. The harmless disposal of these carcasses and waste is an important part of the control of animal diseases and public health care and is carried out by the districts/independent cities. Only through effective treatment is it possible to neutralize detected or unrecognized pathogens of diseases in animal carcasses or their parts. It is therefore necessary to ensure that dead animals and certain animal components are properly disposed of on a special rendering holding. Kitchen and food waste from restaurants and canteen kitchens containing animal components (e.g. meat residues, sausages) are also subject to the uniformly regulated disposal by law and throughout Europe. Dead animals do not belong in the organic bin or on the compost. If you have your own property and it is not located in a water catchment area, you may also bury your pet on your property. The carcase must be covered by a layer of soil at least 50 cm thick. You have found a dead pet? If the animal is on your own property, you as the property owner have to dispose of the animal. If the animal is in the public transport area, please contact the local regulatory authority.
