If you have deer carcasses or remains to dispose of from hunting season you may do so at the Marathon County Landfill but should call the scale office in advance to let us know: 715-446-3101 x103. Regular disposal rates apply ($14/load of 500lbs or less). If you are a processor with a large volume of material, you must call at least 24 hours in advance.
