Dead Animal Movement and Disposal/Rendering

Dead animals have to be disposed of nor more than 72 hours after knowledge of death. Methods by which this can be done are found in IDAPA 02.04.17, Rules Governing Dead Animal Movement and Disposal.

The department licenses rendering plants who may dispose of any dead animals you have. We have provided a list of these plants for your convenience.

Rendering plants are inspected and renewed annually by ISDA inspectors. There is an annual licensing fee of $25. For for new facilities, please included a completed application.* Rendering plants are regulated through Title 25, Chapter 32, Idaho Code, "Rendering Establishments".  If you need an inspection or have any questions, please contact (208) 332-8540 or the field staff in your area.
