Our service deals with the supply and disposal of clinical waste bags and sharps, amalgam waste, hazardous waste, clinical waste, sanitary waste, confidential waste (patient records and office papers) and, sharps disposal and recyclable waste. All dental waste is isolated, stored and disposed of in separate receptacles with the appropriate containers provided so that waste is correctly separated and stored responsibly. We also offer washroom services should you require these.
Amalgam Collection and Disposal
Amalgam collection is integral to our dental waste service. A high proportion of dental amalgam is made up of mercury, which can be harmful to patients and staff in dental surgeries. Our full range of UN approved amalgam disposal collection containers guarantee the safe disposal of amalgam guard, sludge and tooth boxes and capsules which can contain mercury vapour. The mercury suppressant liquid kits are entirely leak proof and prevent any harmful exposure as they are a proven vapour suppressant solution and fully compliant with UN standard regulations. This process is eco-friendly with all amalgam waste sent for recycling once collected.
