Amalgam Recycling & Disposal
Recycle amalgam and amalgam contaminated items.
Waste amalgam items include: chairside trap, leftover or spent amalgam, removed teeth with amalgam fillings, empty amalgam capsules, and vacuum trap containers located by the vacuum pump. All of these contain amalgam residue.
Even if a dental practice claims to be amalgam free, composite only, they can still generate waste amalgam from removed teeth and from chairside and vacuum pump traps.
