I'm contemplating ways of diversifying my ranch operation to remain viable and would like to find out more about providing animal burial services on my ranch land. Where can I find more info about Oregon laws related to this type of business activity? I am considering both large and small animal burial.
Oregon law allows burial of a landowner's own animal mortalities with certain specifications such as distance to surface water, depth of cover, etc. If you will be taking mortalities from other animal owners, it will become a solid waste disposal system which is regulated by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).
Contact your local Natural Resource Specialist at the DEQ for more information.
