Category 2 Animal By Product Collection & Processing


Any Category 2 animal by-products can be collected by Martlands in one of our specialised vehicles and processed at our own dedicated waste processing plant.

Category 2 Animal By-Product Collection & Processing

Martlands is a licenced processor of Category 2 Animal By-Products (ABPs).

Category 2 ABPs are classified as high risk and they include:

  • Animals that have been rejected from abattoirs due to infectious diseases
  • carcasses of animals that were killed for disease control purposes
  • carcasses of dead livestock
  • carcasses that contain residues from authorised treatments
  • digestive tract content
  • manure
  • unhatched poultry that died in its shell

Because of the high-risk nature of animal by-products you need to choose a professional company to collect and process them if they are produced by your business. That’s where Martlands comes in: we have been established in Lancashire for over 100 years and we are experts at managing all kinds of waste.

Martlands ABP Processing

It is against the law to dispose of ABPs without following a detailed series of rules and regulations. Martlands are able to fully comply with all regulations and laws around the processing of animal by products – from providing suitable vehicles to transport them through to detailed hygiene procedures and record keeping. When you choose Martlands to manage the disposal of your ABPs you can be confident of an efficient, professional and safe service.
