"Animal carcasses" include animal dead bodies (intact, or parts); offal; condemned meat .
At present animal carcasses are mainly disposed of at designated landfills managed by EPD through an admission ticket system and a very small amount is cremated. In 2014, about 10 tonnes of animal carcasses were disposed of at landfills daily.
Animal carcasses are typically generated from the following major sources :
- AFCD's animal management centres (kennels)
- livestock farms
- private and public veterinary clinics
- street collections
- Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
- Hong Kong Jockey Club
- Ocean Park
