I don't intend to do this before you animal lovers start chastising me!

Can you put your dead dog in the wheeley bin to be taken away with all your other refuse or is there some bi law which prohibits this?

I suppose this would all depend on the size of your dog and the length of time before the bin is collected. If my dog died on a Wednesday and my bin is collected on a Thursday, I suppose this would be OK, but if he died at the weekend and had to wait most of the week to be collected does this then become an environmental hazzard?

I never thought about all the questions that would have to arise from this idea.

Would he have to go in a seperate bin bag or could he go in loose?

Would it be better putting him in head first or tail first for the best fit to put my other bin bags to go in around him?

I suppose its better to put him in there before he goes stiff as it might be awkward.

Also, if I was having a fire, could I put my dog on the fire and cremate him or would he have to go to a licensed crematorium?

What a waste of a life it is just tossing your dog into a wheelie bin or burning on rubbish heap. Please give your dog the send off he/she deserves. I hear some breeds are rather tasty :)

just make sure he doesn't go in the blue bin... unless he/she is made of paper...
its an interesting point though..
becasue (for example) i had chicken for dinner and put the carcass in the bin... i.e. it was animal waste, which is exactly what you would be doing... your dog would become animal waste.. or would you have to cook it, cut it up and throw parts of it away each week
unless your korean, and then you could just eat it

Wait until the bins are put out on collection day and when no ones looking just put your dog in a neighbours bin, problem solved.:thumbsup:

I've put dead rabbits in the wheelie bin before - I can't really see the difference.

I think they'd make a bigger fuss if the lid wasn't totally shut down because little Rover's paw was sticking up, than they would for having put the dog in there.

Is that what they call "dogging"? :hihi:

Although they aren't part of the food chain and therefore aren't the same as putting a chicken or odd bit of cow in there, they aren't hazardous so I don't think they'd pose a problem from that aspect, but...

I would personally take my guinea pigs and certainly a dog to the vets to be properly disposed of for fear of allegations of animal cruelty. You just know someone would think you'd shoved them in there breathing.

You've just reminded me - isn't an offence to run over a dog then not inform its owner if it wears a collar?

Me thinks you'll be interrogated by the RSPCA (or the Police) if you're caught sticking it in the bin!

Well, if my fat dog dies a natural death (as opposed to being put to sleep at the vet) then she'll certainly go in the bin - if there's enough room.

I did it with the only one of my cats to die naturally, I just put her in a bin liner and sealed it up.

I'm not sentimental about corpses - animal or human.

Also bin men dont generally look in bins, so once he's lifted by their mechanism and dumped into the rest of the stuff in the lorry, nobody would know where he came from.


Would anyone at the tip once he arrived and was sifted out really want to identify the dog and where he originated from? Would they check or just dispose of him? Indeed would he even be noticed at all?

Is this a joke ? My little dog died last weekend of old age and it would never cross my mind just to put him in the bin .if you really love your dog then give him/her a good send off like i did and find a nice little place in the garden and put him / her there with a head stone . Put it this way when you die would you like it if you family just put your body in the bin ready for collection day ? Dont mean to rant but a if i know anybody that just put there died dog in the bin its owner would be in the next collection !

I'm afraid not - there are laws against that. My dad's preferred method of disposal was to be chucked in the big skips at the back of his flat, but he had to have a standard cremation. He was probably turning in the incinerator at the thought of all that money wasted (he was from Barnsley).

Actually, yes, I would be quite happy to be bunged in the bin - once I'm dead, of course.

I was recently on a bus that clipped and killed a small dog on Hucklow Road. The driver, who was clearly distressed at killing such a lovely little dog, picked the dog up and put it on the grass verge. The rather gobby owner of the dog started to remonstrate with the driver who told her that as dogs were no longer licensed, his duty was to move the dog out of the way of further traffic and that he was not duty bound to inform anyone of the incident.

He told the dog's owner that if they rang the council someone would come out and take it away for disposal.

I am not an animal person but surely if you have looked after an animal for a number of years then do as you would be done by.

Ring your local vet or the RSPCA when the time comes.

Failing that, can I suggest a marinade of............

When you move house will you dig up the dog and take it with you?
Surely the new owners of the house will not want to do a bit of gardening to find dog remains, nor will they want a headstone in their garden.

Maybe this putting dogs in bins is the future! All those vets had better worry!

What would happen if your garden was flooded or waterlogged and your dog floated out of the ground and floated away?

I've had a grin or two reading this thread. :)

Two days ago I took some items to the local Council Waste Disposal Site. On one of the massive skips was a full-sized Border Collie staring down at me as I parked the car below him, his paws resting on the front of the skip, tongue hanging out.

I climbed the ramp to the skip next to his "post", expecting the dog to watch me pass him by just a yard away from him.

He stayed motiomless, just facing the drive-in zone, oblivious to me.

It wasn't until I passed him on the way back down the access ramp I realised he was a very, very realistic, full sized stuffed toy! :o

I suppose shutting the wheeley bin lid would be a bit like having the funeral. You could say a few words as you shut the lid.

Then again, you'd proabably need to reopen it to put your pizza box and kitchen bin bag in later, so that kind of ruins the moment.

I agree Jay, not sure if this is a sick joke or an apparent hypothetical query but its in very bad taste.

Practically speaking I would suggest that any large animal (cat/Dog etc) who had died would be classed as biohazard waste therefore disposal in the city waste collection would be prohibited, and a pet crem would be in order if the dog died at home and was not in a vets care at the time of death.

However, as somebody who in the last week has had to support somebody in the decision making process to do the best thing by their life long companion, and then accompany them to the vets and watch as their pet was put to sleep along with the distress this causes, I think the levity with which the OP posted speaks volumes about their humanity.

With respect to euthanasia or disposal of?

I personally don't care what happens to me, cardboard box in a wood would be fine for me.

As for euthanasia? I would support anyone in their decision, but then again, we (as humans) have the ability to make that choice and I would defend anyones right to make that decision.

With regard to our furry friends, they don't, but to take the whole scenario to its most base level, were they creatures in the wild they would probably have been taken down by predators or disease had we as humans not taken care of them. We have the responsibility as guardians of these animals to do the very best for them.

The little guy in question who I refer to in my previous post was 18 yrs old and it was agreed by us and the vet that this was the kindest thing to do given his condition and age.

I hope that answers your question.

I must admit I've chuckled with some of these posts, however, if either (or indeed) when my 2 cats are no longer here, I'll be paying my money to have them cremated so I can scatter their ashes, it's not so expensive really. Though my Yorkshire Terrier I had done was £10 (about 10 years ago) and they spelled his name wrong on the Certificate - that was AFTER I'd spent £1,000 on his care for a fortnight!

Oh dear. I knew someone would get upset somewhere along the line about this. Perhaps I can refer you back to the very first line which opened this thread? Go back and read it.

I have plenty of humanity my dear, it's just a healthy debate, not aimed at anyone in particular, its just a stimulus for discussion. My deepest sympathies to anyone currently mourning the loss of their pet. This thread wasn't created to cause distress only discussion.

With not having sufficient time (or space) to bury any of our animals that have ever died, and paying for collection is way out of our price range (our last quote was £80+) we have always rapped them up, placed them in a box, and placed them in the bin, never had any come back from it, What else could we do honestly?

It *is* a horrible thread. I looked at it because I couldn't believe someone could ask that question at all, regardless of whether they were having a joke. Different things make different people laugh I guess, but I could never see the funny side of talking about pets like this. And I'd certainly question the claim that it's a "healthy" debate.

If we're talking small furries, how about take them out to the local woodland and lay them to rest? In addition vets offer joint cremation and it's way cheaper than £80.

Maybe you could just take your dog or cat and leave it by the side of the road like a sofa!!! Or is this fly tipping?? I suppose if you wrap it well and label it correctly it would avoid someone coming along and taking it home thinking they had swiped a bargain!!!
I think if I put our dog in the bin I would have to put a mask on it so I didnt see his face. Maybe a Homer Simpson one, that way I would have a little chuckle to myself. There is nothing as funny as a dog in a mask!!!

You've heard about 'if you don't like what's on the TV then turn it off...' and since you don't like the thread then don't join in, not difficult! :rolleyes:

Now me, I have a dog and 2 cats who are great friends - one of my cats is getting old and doddery and loves following my dog everywhere but I've never put much though into what we'll do with her when she cops it. Perhaps get her stuffed and put on wheels so the dog will always have a friend that follows her everywhere!! :hihi:

Why would you even want to consider tossing it in the bin, did it not mean anything to you?.
A dog is like a human. If your Mother or child died would you throw them away like that?.
My dog was my best friend and i would never have done that to him, the thought of it upsets me!. He was cremated.

With not having sufficient time (or space) to bury any of our animals that have ever died, and paying for collection is way out of our price range (our last quote was £80+) we have always rapped them up, placed them in a box, and placed them in the bin, never had any come back from it, What else could we do honestly?

Nice... Yes just chuck it in the bin... only another dog (not the 1st one you quote). Cannot afford to give it a rightful send off, but could afford to feed it every day for however long?. Think your children will be able to afford for your funeral, costs more than £80 my love???. Think they should stick you in bin as well, but bugger to rapping you up!!!

Why would you even want to consider tossing it in the bin, did it not mean anything to you?.
A dog is like a human. If your Mother or child died would you throw them away like that?.
My dog was my best friend and i would never have done that to him, the thought of it upsets me!. He was cremated.

Well, that's your opinion and, of course you're entitled to it. But can't you accept that other people have different opinions, which are equally as valid as yours?

Some of us happen to regard a corpse (animal or human) as just a lump of dead meat that requires disposal.

I've had cats and dogs for 30+ years and they have always received the best of care, to say nothing of being spoiled rotten. I've happily spent out thousands of pounds over the years to keep them fit and happy.

My last cat had hyperthyroid and I paid out hundreds in vets fees, blood tests and medication to keep him as well as possible for his last few months. He was cremated - but that was only because he finally had to be put down, so I just left him at the vets. And then I went back a few days later to pay, because I was too upset to do so at the time.

So I do love my pets, but once they're dead, that's it as far as I'm concerned. If he'd just died at home, he would have gone in the bin. And I would be perfectly happy to go in a bin myself - paying out thousands for a funeral is a waste of money in my book.

Of course you're not meant to put a dead animal in your bin. There's a serious lack of brains going on in this thread. At the very least it would have to go in a clinical waste collection. Otherwise you're gonna end up with a mountain of festering animal corpses.

Mind you, I'd have thought that anyone who actually looks after a pet would consider putting some thought into better arrangements for when they die.

This has been a very interesting thread. I've never considered before whether it's "allowed" to dispose of a dog corpse in a wheelie bin.

My grandparents have always had dogs and my grandad owns an allotment. Whenever a dog dies he always buries it at the bottom of the allotment. As he's had this allotment for decades there must be 5-10 dogs buried there at least. I can just imagine the police stumbling upon it and initially thinking that they've found the work of a serial killer. :o

Im talking cats here, when we have 11, and can ONLY JUST afford to feed them (not my call mind, if it was up to me we'd have 2 at most) - if one dies, we cannot afford to feed the other 10 and do whatever for the dead one, however. as said, if it was up to me we'd only have 2 maybe 3, at which point its a different matter, and costs would be easier..

but for a dog, most people only have 1 dog (occasions people have 2 or 3) and again, alot of dogs are bigger than cats, so are harder to dispose of any way...

so yeah, dont get me wrong, personally i'd prefer some proper methods, but there are situations when its just not possible, and the way i see it, once they are dead, thats it, its just a shell, its not your pet anymore, and thats how i'd want to be seen when im dead, do whatever you want with my body after im gone, what do I care? :)

I feel a bodies in bins megathread coming on! Human bodies in bins, how would you like to be disposed of? We've all paid our Council tax, can't the municipal tip get rid of us?

We may as well make use of these council facilities, maybe the Council haven't looked at all these options. Just think, they could be really raking it in in the world of body disposal. You could have a black bin, a blue bin and maybe a bin with a cross on it with RIP on it - put all you dead stuff in it, a bit of lime ash in the bottom to help it decompose and you are onto a winner! I might go on Dragon's Den with this!

Haha great thread this.

It has cheered me up this morning.

Also raises some questions on the best way of disposing pets.

A goldfish and it seems most on here wouldnt care if you flushed it down the loo or threw it in the bin.

Although a dog gets put in the bin and suddenly there are some who are outraged by it.

Is it coz dogs are bigger or is coz people tend to be more attached to pets eg like dogs and cats ?

I was attached to my goldish and was gutted when it died but I didnt have a problem flushing it down the loo.

Love the pic steadiman.

I put a dead kitten in the bin once. It had been hit by a car and was mashed up in a carrier bag (someone scooped it off the road and stuck it in a Tesco bag and put it on my doorstep - I wondered what it was when I was coming down the path but lo and behold there was Poppy in all her glory looking less lively than when I saw her last), so I decided the best thing to do was to dispose of her in the bin. She was small and although I thought she was cute and lovely, she was just a messy corpse. I didn't want to take her out of the bag so chose to carefully bin her. If I'd buried her, the smell of the blood on her would have attracted other animals and she'd have been dug up.

There have been some funny responses to this thread which have really made me laugh and I know the OP isn't serious in his/her question BUT:

Cats and dogs are classed as clinical waste once they are dead (ie: toxic) and therefore should be disposed of as such. They must have a proper burial (in your garden or through pet funeral services) they cannot be placed in bins for the community disposal service (binmen) to pick up.

Google it.

It has nothing to do with 'clinical waste'. Do you think that 'clinical waste' could be buried in your garden?

Dead pets are classed as "Category 1" Animal By-Products (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/smartapi/cgi/sga_doc?smartapi!celexapi!prod!CELEXnumdoc&lg=EN&numdoc=32002R1774&model=guichett).
Regulations control their transportation and they should be disposed of by incineration or burial.

However, I have found at least one UK Council that specifically says that small pets can be disposed of in the bin.

I have found more than one Council that offer a free seperate collection service for dead pets, but the majority are a bit vague and wave you towards the vets.

Veolia do not specifically exclude pets from items that can be disposed of in the wheelie bins.
In fact their website makes no reference to pet disposal at all.

Im sorry but if you can afford the up keep of pets for so many years you can afford to dispose of them properly. Part and parcel of having a pet!!! Not many people think about this cost when they get pets!! Angers me!!
