Amalgon amalgam recycling product is used to properly manage amalgam-contaminated items. Simply fill the container with amalgam-contaminated waste. Attach the pre-paid shipping label and give your full container to the UPS driver or drop it off at a UPS drop-off location. Chair-side vacuum traps should be placed in the Amalgon container. Chair-side vacuum traps should NOT be put in the regular trash, a red bag or rinsed in the sink. Amalgon will be shipped to our EPA licensed processing facility. The amalgam contaminated items are processed. The mercury is separated and recycled.
