Dental Waste Recycling

Dental waste recycling

Hazardous materials like mercury and lead are often found in dental waste. If disposed of as solid waste, incinerated or washed down a drain, these items can contaminate our environment. That’s why environmental regulations strictly require that dental waste be managed properly. In addition, the American Dental Association urges dental offices to avoid disposing of dental amalgam waste in the garbage, infectious waste “red bag” or a sharps container.

Veolia North America has developed an easy way to manage amalgam and dental waste, and is a practice recommended by the American Dental Association. Our simple, cost-effective and convenient solution is a prepaid, mail-back disposal kit called RecyclePak®.
