Dead animals do not belong in green waste

The title says it all – dead animals do not belong in green waste.
Yes, believe it or not, on three occasions in the last two months, dead animals have been dropped off at the South Coast Green Waste Drop-off Depot in Gibsons. The most recent case occurred on Sunday, Jan. 10, when an alert community member, who was dropping off garden waste, noticed animal remains and notified staff of the issue.
Animal remains, domestic or wild, should never be included as green waste. For a list of items accepted as part of the green waste recycling program, or if you have questions about what may or may not belong at any of the SCRDs waste facilities, go to the SCRDs website at
