While no agency oversees the rules, we offer a few tips on scattering a loved one’s ashes in Cypress.
Obtain written permission from private property owners if you plan to scatter the person’s ashes there. A special permit is required to do so in a public park. Ashes should also not be scattered with 100 yards of a public road or trail.
If scattering ashes at sea, it must be done at least three nautical miles from the coast or per Clean Water Act guidelines on obtaining a permit for inland waters. Flowers or wreaths left at sea during the ash scattering ceremony must be decomposable. The law also requires notifying an Environmental Protection Agency regional office in writing within 30 days after scattering a loved one’s ashes at sea.
Also, dispose of cremation containers in Cypress, TX, separately to protect the environment, and contact us if you have any questions or uncertainties about scattering your loved one’s ashes.
