List of suitable burial sites
Landfill site near Carlisle, Cumbria
Landfill sites could extend burial capacity
The foot-and-mouth crisis committee has earmarked 37 landfill sites in England and Wales for the burial of hundreds of thousands of animal carcasses.

The Environment Agency, Maff, and the Environmental Services Association (ESA), which represents landfill site operators, say the sites listed below are suitable for burial.

Junior agriculture minister Joyce Quin said the sites would not be used for infected carcasses, but animals killed as a precaution to stop the spread of the disease.

Carcasses of cattle born before 1 August 1996 may not be buried in landfill sites on the advice of BSE experts from the Bovine Spongiform Encepalopathy Advisory Committee (SEAC).
