The metal finding new life after cremation

The metal finding new life after cremation

Do you know what happens to jewellery, gold teeth, metal hips and coffin nails after cremation? At Roselawn cemetery, just outside Belfast, metals left over after cremation are collected from ashes Belfast City Council seeks written permission from bereaved families to recycle any metals which remain following cremation Metals left over after a cremation are removed from the ashes with tongs and a magnet, before being placed in a recycling container.

The type of metals collected range from stainless steel and copper, to precious metals such as gold and palladium What about jewellery that people may leave on their loved ones when they get cremated - is that collected and recycled as left-over metal as well? "After the cremation there is a separation between the ashes and the metal because you only want to give the families their loved ones' ashes so they can safely scatter them or keep them in an urn," he said. .
