Cremation Metal Recycling:

What our clients are saying

Core Scientific has gone above and beyond our expectations from a post cremation metal recycler. We have doubled our returns, which are used for our local charitable giving program. Core is always ready to assist us with any questions or concerns we have about the process.

Jason Everden
President, Funeral Director & Certified Crematorium Operator – Everden Rust Funeral Services & Crematorium (Kelowna, British Columbia).

Great company! They literally salvaged our recycling program. Consultations and suggestions regarding security and reporting as well as providing the right equipment resulted in our returns nearly tripling!

Kenneth McKay
Operations & Crematorium Manager – All Caring Solutions

When I’m asked why I do business with core scientific, the words honesty, integrity, transparency, dignity, respectful and consistency come to mind. These ideals are why we remain loyal to them.
