Our recycling program embodies the legitimate wishes and rightful demands of decedent's family members, the majority of whom strongly support recycling the left behind orthopedic implants and dental prosthetics of their cremated loved ones strictly for charitable purposes.

Alternative Solutions USA provides the following FREE services to funeral homes, crematories, and cemeteries:


1- Recycle orthopedic implants and dental prosthetics remaining
   after the cremation process.

2- Recycle stored orthopedic implants and dental prosthetics.

Alternative Solutions USA can definitely help you recycle metals that are stored above ground or buried at the cemetery.

After all arrangements have been finalized, our Mobile Team will conduct an initial inspection of your facility to determine the best way to transport metals back to our facility.

Within 30 days after the receipt of metals, a detailed report will be generated and sent out to you indicating types of metals recovered, their weight, total amount of funds generated, and the amount of donation raised for your designated charitable organization. This service is provided at NO COST to your crematory.
