Animal removal agreements in Romeoville

Due to the number of complaints for dead or sick wild animals, such as skunks and raccoons, the Village Board has approved agreements with T&C Trapping and Will County Animal Control. 

The first agreement is a revised contract with T&C Trapping, who already handles the capture of wild animals in the village.

T&C will also be handling the pickup of dead animals for a rate of $125 Monday - Saturday and $200 for Sunday. The village will cover $50 of that fee with the resident being responsible for the remainder.

The second agreement will be with Will County Animal Control to pick up sick or injured animals posing a threat to public health or safety.

The fees range from $100 to $250, depending on when the call is made (weekend, after hours, etc.). The village, not residents, will cover the full cost.

“We understand that from time to time animals can be nuisances. We are striving to offer our residents options during these instances,” Mayor John Noak said in a news release.

T&C Trapping can be reached at 815-467-4039. For sick or injured animals on your property, call the Romeoville Police Department at 815-886-7219, who will then reach out to Will County.
