Dental Amalgam Waste Disposal in Des Moines, IA
LB Medwaste Services safely and securely helps facilities dispose of dental amalgam that is a potential health hazard. Amalgam waste is generated by a dentist when he or she fills cavities, restores teeth, or pulls a filled tooth. This composite is typically one half mercury and the other half consists of silver, tin and copper. Small amounts of zinc, indium, palladium or cadmium may also be included. Storing amalgam waste in a closed container for recycling is the recommended method of management. LB Medwaste provides a tracking device and certificate of destruction for your facility to keep your work place safe.
