|(a) Acceptable methods for disposal of poultry carcasses include the following storage, processing, and disposal methods: (1) placement in a landfill permitted by the commission to receive municipal or industrial solid waste; (2) composting, as defined in §332.2 of this title (relating to Definitions), and as further described in §332.23 of this title (relating to Operational Requirements); (3) cremation or incineration; (4) extrusion; (5) rendering; and (6) any other method the commission determines to be appropriate. (b) Prior to disposition by any method listed in subsection (a) of this section, poultry facilities may: (1) store poultry carcasses on site for no more than 72 hours provided that storage is in a varmint-proof receptacle to prevent odor, leakage, or spillage, but (2) shall freeze, or refrigerate at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or less, any poultry carcasses which require on-site storage for more than 72 hours. (c) Poultry carcasses may not be disposed of by burial on-site except in the event of a major die-off that exceeds the capacity of a poultry facility to store and process poultry carcasses by the normal means used by the facility. A mortality rate of 0.3% or more per day of the facility's total poultry inventory shall be deemed a major die-off for the purposes of this section. This subsection supersedes any provisions of a permit or other authorization issued by the commission or its predecessor agencies which may have authorized on-site burial of poultry carcasses. This section does not authorize violation of any applicable regulations or laws. (d) Transportation of poultry carcasses to an off-site location for final disposition shall be in accordance with applicable local, state or federal regulations or laws.
