Dental Waste Management and Disposal

We advise dental practices on all hazardous and non- hazardous waste segregation, storage and disposal. Whatever your size of practice, we offer clinical and dental waste containers and bags and a collection frequency in tune with your practice.

For the above we provide yellow-lidded sharps bins, orange ‘soft clinical’ bags and robust sealed drums and pots in 500ml to 10 litres sizes for amalgam and amalgam sludge, x-ray fixer and developer and also tooth boxes, which can be renewed on each visit.

Greener Options also offers a specialist container for the disposal of dental study moulds containing gypsum.
