Why Choose Us

FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED

with over 20 years experience in the funeral industry. Unlike many of the larger, corporate types of recyclers (with high overhead), we provide personalized service and we operate our businesses with the utmost integrity and ethics.

FREE VIDEO TRAINING PROGRAM

for your crematory operators, which will help them to identify and remove virtually all metal (precious and non-precious), from the cremains, which in turn will help to increase your settlements. It is our understanding that this training video is the first of its kind in our industry and will serve to help educate and train operators on best practices. This training video will be especially helpful for new operators.

FREE SCREEN

to be used in post-processing, to remove small pieces of metal, which will help to produce cleaner cremains for your clients (especially important for those clients who scatter their cremains). It will also help to improve settlements by capturing more precious metal and will help to reduce your crematory liability.

FREE SUPPLIES-FREE SHIPPING-FREE DELIVERY

Our free supplies include shipping containers, pacemaker boxes, a precious metal collection container and pacemaker bags.

ACCEPT ALL CREMATION METAL

Including dental, medical orthopedic implants, pacemakers and associated wires, along with casket handles, pins, staples, plates, screws & nails.

REWARDS PROGRAM

In lieu of receiving a settlement check, your settlement can be used to purchase cremation supplies (cremation containers, wood based cremation containers, shipping containers, temporary urns, cremation bags, brushes, rollers, urns, id tags, processors, burial platform etc.), from our affiliate company, NECS.

PROCESSOR BLADES & BEARINGS

We offer processor blades and bearings, including installation, for Matthews and B&L Processors. In addition, if your processor is out of service, we offer short term processor rentals by the week or month.

NO CONTRACTS TO SIGN

We operate without a signed contract, making it easy to do business with us.

TWO RECYCLING COMPANIES

We offer two recycling companies to support your needs. CMR will process your settlement and send you a check, which you can use at your discretion, or you can donate to your own charity.

If you’d prefer us to handle your settlement and send it directly to your charity, then we will use our Non-profit, 501 (C) (3) company RRCF. If you don’t have a charity, you’re welcome to choose from among 5 different charities chosen by our Board of Directors. In addition, your settlement funds can be held in escrow and we’ll disperse them among our 5 charities at the end of the year.

OUR SETTLEMENTS ARE AMONG THE HIGHEST IN THE INDUSTRY.

Many of our clients have told us that our settlements have been higher than their previous recycler. The bottom line is that our settlements are fair and competitive. And if you’re looking to increase your settlements, we can help. Our personal support, free training video and free screen will all work to help you increase your settlements.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your outstanding service through the years. Teaching us how to extract close to, if not 100% of the metals has enabled us to adequately fund the many charitable programs that we sponsor here at Lindwood.”

WHY RECYCLE?

Beginning around the year 2008, cremation metal recycling has become a popular method of disposing of medical implants, dental, pacemakers and other associated metals collected during the cremation process. Prior to recycling, these metals were disposed of by burying in the ground, in a vault or placed in a landfill.

According to Industry analysts, 75%+ crematories now recycle. In some cases the settlement funds are used to help pay for crematory maintenance and operational expenses and in other cases, the crematory donates all settlement proceeds to a charity.

Those crematories who haven’t yet adopted recycling usually do so for ethical reasons or concerns. Many crematories don’t want to be seen as profiting from the sale of cremation metal. We fully understand and respect your concerns. Perhaps it would be helpful to survey your clients, especially if you shared the environmental benefits of recycling and the benefits of donating all proceeds to a charity. You might be surprised that many of your clients would approve of you recycling. In addition to donating settlements to a charity, you could also set up an escrow fund and help a needy family pay for funeral expenses. Or, perhaps there is a family in need of medical support in your community.
