Request removal of a dead animal

Removals from private and commercial properties

If you would like us to remove a dead animal from private commercial land or your own private garden, we can help you, but we will charge you for this service. This service is for wild animal or pets that get killed by vehicles on the road and not for collection of a deceased pet from your home.

Charge for this service: £48.00 (inc 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.
