• Residential deer waste: Deer waste for disposal by non-commercial customers continues to be exempt from any special handling regulations so long as there is no evidence of the presence of chronic wasting disease (CWD). Carcasses can be disposed of in the regular household trash unless chronic wasting disease is suspected* (see below.) Each resident can dispose of up to 2 bagged, CWD-free carcasses per visit at the Materials Recovery Center for a fee ($22/cu. yd.)
• Businesses (Commercial deer waste): Customers who generate deer waste as part of their business will no longer need to have this waste profiled and manifested. These carcasses can go in the trash unless Chronic Wasting Disease* (CWD) is suspected. Businesses should contact their garbage haulers for specific details on carcass management and disposal guidelines.
• *Deer waste with chronic wasting disease (CWD): If deer waste is known to be infected with CWD, it cannot go in the trash and will need to be disposed of in an alternate manner (landfill/burial is not recommended.)
