Dead Animals Roadside

The following procedures will be followed for the pick up of dead animals on Town of Clay roads.

The Town of Clay Highway Department will pick up and dispose of large animals (such as deer) as part of their responsibility to maintain the Town of Clay roads. The Town does not pick up small dead animals, including cats, on Town of Clay roads. Call CNY SPCA for the procedure on picking up dead dogs.

Please follow the NYSDEC guidelines for the safe disposal of small dead animals. The guideline is to invert a double plastic bag over the carcass and put into the trash.
