Dead Animal Removal

Please do not put dead animals in refuse collection containers.

To request the removal of a dead animal from the public right-of-way, use the City's "Get it Done" app or call Environmental Services at (858) 694-7000 from 6:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is also the number to use for after-hours messages and emergencies.

The removal of dead animals from County maintained roads or facilities is a service provided by Singh Group. They can be reached by calling (760) 539-0012.

The removal of dead animals on freeways is handled by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
