In addition to burial and cremation destinations, KFK Livestock Removal and Transport can relocate deceased animals to an approved rendering facility (fallen horse facility).
The Illinois Dead Animal Disposal Act provides for the collection and disposal of bodies or parts of bodies of dead animals, poultry, or fish, as well as used cooking grease and oils. Any person caring for an animal, poultry, or fish is required to properly dispose of the carcass within 24 hours as prescribed by regulations pertaining to the Act.
Rendering is a process that converts waste animal tissue into stable, value-added materials. Rendering can refer to any processing of animal products into more useful materials, or more narrowly to the rendering of whole animal fatty tissue into purified fats like lard or tallow.
Renderer means any person who, for other than human consumption, collects, cooks and processes bodies or parts of bodies of dead animals, poultry or fish, or used cooking grease and oils, for the purpose of salvaging hides, wool, skins or feathers, and for the production of animal, poultry, or fish protein, blood meal, bone meal, grease or tallow.
