When disposing of amalgam waste, it is important to have a chair side trap installed to contain stray solid amalgam. Also be mindful of the extracted teeth and amalgam capsules. The amalgam waste should be collected in a container with a secure lid and labeled as dental amalgam waste. The container should then be picked up, we can take it from there.
X-Ray Fixer and Developer Disposal
Used X-ray fixer and sometimes developer is considered a hazardous waste because of the silver content. Due to the silver content, X-ray fixer and developer must not be disposed of as regular waste. It must be sent for off site recovery to ensure proper and safe disposal.
