Dental Waste Containers

Reliable dental waste containers for safe dental waste disposal

It is essential that all waste produced within the Dental Practice is placed into its correct container for disposal. We have a wide range of UN-approved containers specifically designed for each dental waste stream. The mercury vapour suppressant, and quantity present, has been specifically placed inside the unit to protect anyone opening the container from the poisonous effects of the mercury inside. Mercury vapour is colourless, odourless and tasteless so it is not possible to determine the level of exposure.
