Collection staff will remove dead animals from the public right of way within two business days of notification.

DO NOT put a dead animal in your trash cart. Request a dead animal pick-up.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) handles dead animals located on farm-to-market, ranch-to-market, state, U.S. and interstate highways. If the dead animal is on one of those roadways, please contact TXDOT directly at 512-974-0883 or submit a request.
