Thread: waste disposal

    waste disposal

    Leading on from gralloch disposal, which I am comfortable with. What is the official route to dispose of hide, bones and meat waste when you butcher a carcase down. Our local tip wont take animal waste but food waste is fine. My view would be that it is food waste but then thats easiest for me. What is officially correct and what do you guys do??

    Bag it and put it in your domestic bin for occaisional deer (with a nice tip at Christmas) - several carcases a week would probably constitute trade waste and the Council would charge or refer you to the butchers waste collection company in the area.

    (many years in the waste industry)

    If you're producing more than 1 bag of carcase waste a week its sometimes worth while thinking about getting a waste pit dug in some corner of the etatae or farm to take the waste. Its also a good way of using up that old single skin diesel tank that no one wants to take off your hands. You cut the bottom off and use the sides and top as the frame and the lid for the waste pit.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Don't think I will click that link either!

    I fyou butcher a deer for domestic use -ie for you self or to give to family and friends, then you may legally put it in your domestic waste(Suitably bagged). If you are processing to sell then you need to pay for a waste disposal company to collect.

    Digging a waste pit requires authorisation by the Environment Agency

    Wheelie bin bag it, thats it gone, Ive put 35 + Roe skins, legs and heads etc in the bin during April alone never had anyone say anything ,its rubbish after all it all goes to land fill or incineration .

    The only thing it says on the bin is no hot ashes,the Butcher does the same with his bones etc .

    I think the law on that is that you can bury it on the land that it came from ie the same estate it must be 1 meter underground and I believe its 10 meters from any water course.
