    TCW is an Expert in Managing Amalgam Waste

    Amalgam waste needs to be checked and disposed of professionally since it contains a chemical called mercury. A licensed professional like TCW is well-equipped with trained personnel to handle amalgam waste so that it does not get mixed with other wastes, thus posing danger to the general public and the environment.

    TCW provides end-to-end customised services that would help you tackle this kind of waste in the best possible way.

    Amalgam waste is classified as hazardous waste which essentially has a critical material called mercury. This component is present in products such as vacuum pump filters and capsules. In dental clinics, amalgam is used in saliva ejectors and extracted teeth with amalgam restorations, etc. All healthcare clinics, especially dental clinics generate amalgam waste. It is one of the most common ways of filling up tooth decay.

    Although, mercury exposure might not harm the general population; severe exposure might lead to effects such as diarrhoea, skin irritation, nausea, and vomiting. To go for disposal, the amalgam waste container needs to be placed in rigid spectacles with a mercury suppressant so that a process for mercury recovery can be initiated. Once the recovery is done, amalgam waste disposal is done responsibly.

    Amalgam separators act as filters where the amalgam particles are removed from the waste and then disposed of. These amalgam particles are considered hazardous hence, they must get disposed of through a professional waste management company. The Amalgam separator needs to be changed every 12 months or when the canister is full, whichever is early.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequently Asked Questions

    To secure the amalgam from other waste streams, a plastic container is provided by the local council or contracted waste management company which is labelled as ‘Amalgam for recycling’ or technically called an ‘Amalgam Separator’. All types of amalgam waste are stored in the box.

    Amalgam waste is considered hazardous as it comprises silver and mercury, both of which are harmful when disposed of.

    Dental amalgam emits low quantities of mercury in the form of a vapour. If breathed and absorbed by the lungs, it can have negative effects on the brain and kidneys. Therefore, hiring a professional is necessary rather than handling it oneself.
