Amalgam Recovery

Amalgam waste is found within the dental practice. 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. Solmetex provides a DOT/EPA approved storage and shipping container with prepaid return shipping and certificate of recycling.

Amalgam Buckets are for the recycling of chair-side traps, 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.
