Helping dental offices stay legal, compliant and environmentally responsible

The Environmental Protection Agency, as well as other federal, state and local regulatory bodies, requires the proper collection, recycling and disposal of hazardous materials generated by dental offices.

We help your office remain environmentally legal, EPA compliant and in alignment with American Dental Association Best Management Practices. Our expert hazardous-waste management helps ensure that your amalgam waste, amalgam traps, lead foil and film are collected and disposed of safely and responsibly. We recycle select materials.

Protecting your business and the environment

To keep things legal, safe, simple and cost-effective, we offer prepaid waste-collection kits for individual waste-stream items. For dental offices within 150 miles of Minneapolis, we also offer pickup services.

Our kits are designed to properly dispose of the following materials. Please note that we do not currently accept sharps or sharps-related waste:
