A public appeal has been launched to find their owners of an ornate items discovered by waste collectors last week.

An ornate urn, full of ashes, was picked up somewhere in the capital last week.

On Friday, the piece was discovered during a waste haul, amongst other items catalogued as worthy of restoration or repurposing.

Now, the company who made the discovery are keen to return the sentimental item.

James Rubin owner of EnviroWaste said,

“It’s very sad to think that someone may be missing a loved one’s remains and even if discarding the urn wasn’t a mistake, I know I would sleep better at night knowing we did all we could to reunite the urn with its owner.

“The urn itself is beautiful and in very good condition so my gut feeling is that it was cherished and probably not meant to be discarded. I hope that our appeal is successful because I’m not sure what we would do with it.”
