Our Amalgam Recycling System allows you to properly dispose of scrap amalgam, which contains traces of harmful mercury. Amalgam waste CANNOT be discarded in regular trash, in bio-hazard containers with other red bag and sharps waste, or into the sanitary sewer due to the presence of mercury. Treatment of amalgam through these channels can result in mercury exposure for the service providers supporting your practice along with the the environment which is fully preventable through the use of our systems.
Our amalgam recycling systems can help your practice adhere to the American Dental Association‘s and the Environmental Protection Agency‘s best management practices for amalgam recycling through a fully compliant, easy to use, and cost effective solution.
Purchase price for our kits, which are fully compliant with all federal, state, and local regulations, includes all outbound and return mail postage. Amalgam Recycling Systems are available in 1.25, 2.5, and 5 gallon sizes.
