Deer waste disposal sites
Wisconsin prides itself on the quality of our deer herd and the availability of hunting opportunities, however with a successful harvest comes the generation of deer carcass waste. Unfortunately, much of this waste is discarded in the fields, woods and waterways that support our herd, raising the risk for the transmission of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD).
Below is a map of landfill, dumpster and transfer station facilities and a list of waste haulers that have offered to accept deer carcass waste. Unfortunately, dumpsters shown below will not be available for business generated carcass waste. Businesses should contract with haulers directly to dispose of their carcass waste or haul the carcass waste to one of the landfills or transfer stations listed below. Please click on the facility to see the facility name and location, contact number, operating times and any conditions that they may have for carcass handling. Many communities accept single carcasses in curbside pick-up for residents. Contact your local solid waste provider or municipality to check policies on carcass waste acceptance prior to disposal.
The department is currently reallocating resources to get updates ready for the 2020 deer hunting season. Please keep checking back for regular updates as this site is a work in progress.
* The information on this page was collected through voluntary participation in a DNR-conducted survey of the businesses listed. If you are interested in having your facility or business listed, please contact Daniel Kroll.
Double bag it! If you are disposing of your deer waste at a transfer station, in a dumpster or a curbside pick up, putting the carcass in garbage bags keeps bins cleaner, reduces the chance of nuisance scavengers and keeps odors down.
