Dealing with Dead Deer or Other Dead Animals

January 26th, 2010

If you find a dead deer or other dead animal on a city street or other city property, contact 3-1-1 to report it to Austin Resource Recovery (formerly Solid Waste Services). Please note that the dead animal must be placed at the curb for pickup. Austin Resource Recovery cannot pick up animals that are on private property. Animals will be picked up within 1-2 business days.
