|An Important Note About Euthanized Animals in Landfills
The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) oversees the waste management centres in the Comox Valley and in Campbell River, and follows North American standards for disposal of animal carcasses. It is very important for people bringing animal carcasses to a landfill to advise the operators, so the proper procedures can be followed. This is particularly important when the animal carcasses have been euthanized by a drug injection, as that drug – if ingested by a scavenging bird or animal – can cause illness or even death.
Our procedures involve burying the carcass below the toe of the active landfill area and immediately covering it with waste material, thereby ensuring there is no access to it by scavenging birds or other animals. The cover is immediately at least a metre deep. At the end of the day, the cover could be as much as three metres deep.
We support having veterinarians advise their clients of the options for cremation. If the client opts to bury their pet, we also support veterinarians explaining the importance of proper burial which is one to two feet deep, with the grave then covered with stones.
