The Importance of Amalgam Recycling

Studies from the EPA show that almost 50% of mercury in public waste water systems is derived from dental offices. If your office places or removes amalgam, then the office is generating hazardous waste that needs to be disposed of properly not just being flushed don't the drain or in the regular trash. Federal regulations and some states will impose fines and other penalties when an office is improperly disposing of hazardous waste.

Avoid these fines by following the ADA's series of "Best Management Practices for Amalgam Waste":

  • Use Chair Side Traps
  • Install Amalgam Separators
  • Use Vacuum Collection
  • Inspect and Clean Traps OR Use Disposable Traps the can be put in Amalgam Storage Containers
  • Collect and Recycle Amalgam

Dentists have always been good caretakers of the environment and we encourage our customers to, when possible, follow these recommendations in order to limit the release of dental amalgam waste into the environment.
