Deer Carcass Collection


At the recommendation of the WV-DNR, the annual collection of deer carcasses by the Berkeley County Recycling Program for composting has been cancelled. The WV-DNR has recently added Berkeley County to the list of containment counties for Chronic Waste Disease (CWD). The restrictions are designed to combat the spread
of CWD. In July, Berkeley and Mineral counties were added to Hampshire, Hardy and Morgan counties as areas where CWD restrictions apply. It is recommended that deer carcass disposal occur only at approved landfills. Hunters are reminded that some restrictions apply to the transportation of dead deer beyond the boundary of Berkeley, Hampshire, Hardy, Mineral, and Morgan counties. If you have any questions about CWD, please contact the the District II Regional WV-DNR office at 304-822-3551.
