Newark, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/02/2019 -- Dental professionals and dental office managers who have not yet installed their EPA-compliant amalgam separators and disposal systems are encouraged to contact Choice MedWaste to learn about how their biohazard waste disposal in Philadelphia, PA can help properly package, separate, and remove amalgam waste.

Amalgam waste is a special type of medical waste produced mainly by dental offices. Amalgam waste can be composed of up to 50% mercury, a toxic chemical that has been found to negatively impact the health of both wildlife and humans. A large portion of the exposure comes from mercury entering our water systems. In an effort to better protect the environment, the EPA has introduced new regulations dictating how amalgam waste must be disposed of. These stipulations state that dental offices must use an amalgam waste separator in their facilities in order to trap the amalgam and mercury before it enters local water supplies. Dental practices must be in compliance with amalgam regulations before July 14th, 2020, though a few offices and situations may be exempt from the new rule.

Choice MedWaste can help dental professionals ensure that their practices are in compliance with the EPA's regulations regarding amalgam waste disposal. Their company's silver separators are quick and easy to install, and their biohazard waste cleanup in Montgomery County services ensure that amalgam waste does not inadvertently put local wildlife or humans at-risk.

Choice MedWaste recommends that dental professionals set up their disposal system well before new EPA regulations go into effect to ensure they are not fined or shut down. Anyone interested in learning more about amalgam waste and its disposal is encouraged to contact Choice MedWaste today by calling 302-262-8261.
