Fellow Americans,

Recycling the left behind medical implants and dental prosthetics of our cremated loved ones after the cremation process is an environmental necessity; however, the general consensus among decedent's family members and the general public is that these metals should be recycled strictly for charitable purposes and not for private gain or corporate profit.

Over the past many years, crematories interested in protecting our environment through recycling metals remaining after cremation had no choice but to utilize the services of for-profit implant recycling companies that are more focused on increasing their profits rather than giving back to the community. A large percentage of crematory owners, however, declined to recycle, though environmentally unfriendly, due to the absence of a non-profit recycling option.

The founding of the nation's first and only 501(c) (3) non-profit implant recycling program, Alternative Solutions USA, in April 2010 represents a significant milestone in the objectives of recycling metals recovered after the cremation process nationwide. Crematories that never considered recycling before are now joining our program due to being non-profit, other privately and corporately owned crematories have cancelled their service with other programs to join our mission and give back to their local communities.

The recycling of these metals must become an issue of great concern and interest for our nation because Americans have historically stood up for what is ethical, right, and fair. Donating profits generated from recycling the left behind implants and prosthetics of our cremated loved ones to charitable organizations serving our local communities, especially during these times of extreme economic hardship, is the RIGHT thing to do and we need your help to ensure that metals recovered at every crematory across the nation are recycled for charity.
