Guidance on dolav bins for carcasses of sheep, poultry and pigs during periods of high mortality

The Welsh Assembly Government has issued the following guidance on the temporary storage of animal by-products, including the use of dolav bins, during periods of high mortality in the sheep, poultry and pig sectors. Similar principles will also apply in England and Scotland.

Any person handling animal by-products needs to comply with the EU Animal By-Products Regulation. The Regulation requires that animal by-products shall be identified, collected and transported for disposal without undue delay. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the livestock keeper to ensure that carcasses are collected / delivered to an approved site without undue delay. The original article can be read here
