We provide an extensive range of dental waste containers and disposal services to ensure the correct segregation, storage and disposal of waste is carried out in compliance to the regulations.
For dental waste that contains amalgam, we offer a range of waste containers are UN approved and contain an integrated mercury suppressant to limit any potential exposure to mercury vapour. We also provide an amalgam separator that prevents amalgam particles entering the sewage system through your waste water.
Our service offers your clinic or surgery a legally compliant method of dental waste disposal, with new containers supplied on each visit by our trained service technicians. During these visits a hazardous waste consignment note is completed and provided for your records.
Dental clinics and surgeries produce a variety of different hazardous waste types that all need to be managed in the correct way, some of which may contain amalgam. Dentists and orthodontists are governed by strict legislation surrounding the safe management and disposal of dental waste due to its hazardous nature.
The correct disposal of dental waste is vital to ensure your business complies with The Environmental Protection Act 1990, Controlled Waste Regulations 2012 and the Hazardous Waste Directive 2011.
The Environmental Protection Act 1990 stipulates that all producers of waste have a Duty of Care to ensure that the correct and proper management of waste is performed ensuring hazardous waste does not cause pollution to the environment or harm to human health.
