This Silver Service Disposal Box helps dental practices meet the EPA’s new regulation for properly recycling amalgam waste. As of July 2017, the EPA regulation is requiring all dental schools, dental offices and dental clinics to install an amalgam separator if they discharge wastewater into a public water system and place or remove amalgam. Practices will have to comply with the EPA rule by July 14, 2020.
It is a great value when you have to replace your amalgam separator cartridge and amalgam waste containers. The amalsed Silver cartridge is compatible with many separators. These include SolmeteX Hg5, DentalEZ Amalgam HoG, DentalEZ Hg5 and the Apavia AVT-Max.
The Silver Service Disposal Box includes:
- An amalsed Silver cartridge
- 1.5 gallon Amalgam Waste Container
- Amalgam Capsule bag
Silver Service Disposal Box Is Part of A Compliant Amalgam Collection Program
Combined with the amalsed Silver, this compliant amalgam collection program not only meets, but it also exceeds the EPA’s recommended guidelines for dental office amalgam recycling.
The program includes a courtesy phone call reminder to replace your amalsed Silver cartridge and waste containers. This hassle-free service saves you the trouble of marking the calendar or tracking your usage. When it comes time to carry out your replacement, simply place your materials back into the Silver Service Disposal Box. Then you send them back to medentex’s licensed amalgam collection facility using the pre-paid UPS shipping label. Lastly, medentex will provide certification demonstrating your compliance with the new EPA rule.
Also, you can rest assured knowing you are doing your part to help keep mercury out of America’s waterways.
For dental offices with one to five chairs, we recommend replacing the cartridge once per year. Those with six to 12 chairs should replace their amalsed Silver cartridge twice per year, in six-month intervals. Dental practices with 13 or more chairs should call for an individual replacement cycle.
