Me and my dad usually throw stuff the dogs kill in the trash. Is that ok?
You can always eat them.

You can put anything you want in there as long as you don't put it in there on Monday when your pickup day is Friday and you bury it deep enough.
Pretty much this. I do prefer burying them though. No point in letting good nutrients go to waste, so I put them back in the ground where they belong.
They'll wind up there eventually, anyway, if you throw them away.
Don't you get woried about pet zombies?
Nothing leaves a landfill once it goes in. It's not supposed to anyway, but some crap does escape. I was working on a job a couple years ago that was on top of landfill, and they were digging up newspapers from the 40s that were still perfectly readable. This were buried decades before modern landfill technology came into place.
They're my minions. Squirrels, rabbits, and hermit crabs aren't too powerful on their own, but I'm hoping to make up for that in raw numbers.
ded cat. wat do?

OP: I've never had an issue tossing non-payers in the large bins.
I've heard stories like that too from the old landfills. Apparently they compact things so much that oxygen can't get in.
i would say it varies depending on your locale
these days, some states, cities or counties could have some kind of law/regulations around this
Ugh, that's gross, not to mention completely inappropriate for the trash. That's what the neighbor's yard is for. Or the neighbor's car if you're in a sporting mood.
If it's a pet, I would just bury it. Would you throw a family member in the trash when they die? It's just a dead body, but it just feels appropriate to do something more respectful.
If it's like mice or something, or a bird that smashed into your window, then yeah I just put it in the trash.
One time I found a dead crow in my yard while mowing the lawn, so I picked it up and put it in the same bag I put the clippings in. That bag somehow got forgotten while all the other bags got brought to the dump. This was at my parent's house where my dad insisted on bagging grass rather than just use a mulcher, so we had like 40 bags. But that one bag got left behind.
A week after when I was mowing the lawn again I noticed the bag. I did the unthinkable, and opened it. "There's room in here" I thought. The smell of a decomposing bird, mixed with the smell of wet grass, made for a very weird smell.
A beloved family cat of ours died of old age last winter. My kids and I wrapped him in an old shirt and put him in a shoe box with some of his favorite toys. The ground was frozen with many layers of snow, so I put him in a box out in the shed to await burial.
About two weeks later I got worried that it would never thaw, so on trash day I tossed him in. I feel bad about it, but not that bad.
Weird. And I'm the one who lives in the middle of nowhere, but our landfill rules are: "No animal carcasses." Though, that's never stopped me.
I called the city when my dog killed a cat. They said to just throw the cat in the trash.
Uh, I set some rat traps to stop a squirrel from eating my pumpkins and it killed it. I could have put it in a plastic trash bag in the trash but I took some internet advice and buried it in the yard. I used to put rats in the trash though, when I had rats in the attic. Rat traps, again. I killed dozens of rats until they finally figured out that my attic wasn't safe. AFAIK, there hasn't been a rat up there for nearly a decade.
