There is a dead dear alongside the road, who do I call?

A Township plow or vehicle hit my garbage can, who’s going to clean up the garbage?
It is the responsibility of the homeowner to clean up the garbage. All garbage and recycling cans are to be placed behind the resident’s mailbox off of the paved roadway. The farther away they are the better chance that the snow from a plow won’t hit it. At no time throughout the year should garbage or cans of any kind be placed on the roadway.
