The dental industry is coming under increased environmental pressure particularly with regard to the uncontrolled disposal of amalgam and other mercury bearing wastes.
Interwaste is at the forefront of providing solutions for issues that are unique to the dental industry including:
- Dental amalgam recycling
- Provision of amalgam separators
- X-ray film recycling
- X-ray fluid recycling and disposal
Interwaste works with partners in Australia to recycle amalgam and other mercury bearing products in the most environmentally sustainable manner, as no facilities in New Zealand are able to deal with these products.
The services above can be provided in conjunction with standard clinical and sharps collection and disposal services.
