Are we required to disinfect amalgam waste before placing it in the Amalgon container?


Amalgam contaminated items like chair-side traps, screens and filters should be placed in the Amalgon container after you have performed routine vacuum line cleaning/maintenance per vacuum system manufacturers specifications. Teeth placed in the Amalgon container must be non-infectious. As long as no ‘tissue’ is attached to the tooth, it’s generally accepted the tooth is non-infectious.
