Council Presents £15k To Charities From Recycling Scheme

Eastbourne Borough Council has donated £15,000 to two charities, Chestnut Tree House and the British Heart Foundation, through a metal recycling scheme.

Eastbourne Crematorium is a member of the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM) national metals recycling scheme.

Following a cremation, the cremated remains may contain metals from orthopaedic implants such as hip or knee replacement joints as well as items from the construction of the coffin.
