Have a dead hippopotamus you need to throw away?

Take it to the landfill.

Miramar Landfill, the city-owned dump, charges $124 to accept a dead animal in excess of 500 pounds. Yep, it’s in the landfill’s list of special fees. I’ve spent the day digging through them for some research I’m doing on construction debris recycling.

Dumping a 500-pound load of dead animals will also run you $124. A load of dead animals weighing between 250 and 500 pounds is a more economical $62.

So there you go.
