Amalgam Waste Disposal
Dental amalgam waste can be recycled to help prevent the release of mercury to the environment. Every dental office that places or replaces amalgam fillings needs to use proper disposal method, or else
you are violating Federal hazardous waste disposal laws.
Contact, non-contact, chair side traps, vacuum pump filters, amalgam sludge, empty amalgam capsules and non infectious teeth with amalgam restorations shoud be properly dispose off.
To help Dentists, the ADA has developed "Best Management Practices for Amalgam Waste, which outline ways to handle and dispose of amalgam waste. (Source ADA).
