In October 2018, the Carrboro Town Council approved Natural Burials at Old Carrboro Cemetery.
Carrboro Town Code defines Natural Burial as:
"A method of internment with minimal environmental impact and which aids in the conservation of natural resources, reduction of carbon emissions, protection of worker health, and the restoration and preservation of natural habitats. This method of internment does not include embalming of bodies, does not require grave liners or vaults, encourages the use of biodegradable burial containers, and is intended to the natural decomposition of bodies."
At this time there are no cemetery plots available at Old Carrboro Cemetery.
