§ 1180.13. Transporting Dead Animals.
(a) In accordance with Food and Agricultural Code section 19348, no dead animal may be unloaded at any place not authorized to receive such dead animals except that dead animals may be transferred from a wrecked, disabled transportation vehicle to another transportation vehicle for delivery to a licensed rendering plant, a licensed collection center, state or county diagnostic laboratory, a crematory, or other destinations or facilities authorized by law. No slaughterer shall pick up any dead animal pursuant to section 19342 of the Food and Agricultural Code unless he is licensed as a dead animal hauler.
(b) In case a vehicle is disabled en route and the transporter of dead animals finds it necessary to unload the animals and reload them into an operable vehicle, he shall report the transfer by providing a statement of the need for using a different vehicle, in writing, to the Department within five (5) business days.
(c) In accordance with Food and Agricultural Code section 19348, a dead animal hauler may deliver dead animals to an appropriately permitted landfill if he has certification from a licensed renderer that the renderer cannot process the dead animals.
(1) To obtain the required certification, the renderer, collection center, dead animal hauler, or animal owner shall submit a completed MPES Form 79-121 (08/11), Permit Request To Dispose of Carcass(es) At A Landfill, to the Department. The MPES Form 79-121 must be signed by authorized persons representing the renderer and the dead animal hauler.
(2) The Department shall review the submitted MPES Form 79-121 and, if it is complete, properly signed, and the Department determines that the listed reason why the renderer cannot process the dead animal(s) is valid, the Department shall issue an MPES Form 79-122 (08/11), Permit To Transport Carcass(es) To A Landfill, to the dead animal hauler.
(3) The dead animal hauler shall have the completed MPES Form 79-122 in his possession when delivering the carcass(es) to the landfill and shall retain the MPES Form 79-122 for one (1) year.
(4) If the dead animal hauler must transport dead animals to a landfill on a weekend, evening, or during other times that the Department is closed and unable to receive and process the MPES Form 79-121 (08/11), Permit Request To Dispose of Carcass(es) At A Landfill, or if the condition of the dead animals is such that they must be transported to a landfill without delay, the dead animal hauler may transport the dead animal(s) to the landfill and shall subsequently submit a completed MPES Form 79-121 (08/11), Permit Request To Dispose of Carcass(es) At A Landfill, to the Department within five (5) working days, along with a letter explaining why it was necessary to transport the dead animal(s) to the landfill without waiting for prior approval and issuance of an MPES Form 79-122 (08/11), Permit To Transport Carcass(es) To A Landfill, by the Department.
