Removals from private and commercial properties
If you'd like us to remove a dead animal from private commercial land or your own private garden, we can help, but we will charge you for this service. This service is for wild animals or pets that get killed by vehicles on the road and not for collection of a deceased pet from your home.
The charge for this service is £61.50 plus VAT
You can pay by cash or cheque made payable to 'London Borough of Southwark'. Please have the fee ready to give to our staff when they collect the dead animal from your property. We will issue a receipt on payment.
