Disposal

Our recycling concept

The METASYS subsidiary, DENTAL ECO SERVICE, offers a comprehensive recycling concept for collected amalgam residues and serves a global network of collection points. The collected amalgam waste is professionally recycled at our in-house conditioning plant. In Austria and Germany, other dental waste (such as x-ray chemicals and lead foils) is also collected and disposed of in accordance with statutory requirements.

With its straightforward and legally correct disposal of dental waste, DENTAL ECO SERVICE helps every dental practice to protect the environment. DENTAL ECO SERVICE has also introduced the voluntary system of environmental management and environmental operations certification (ISO 14001 and EMAS/Eco Audit, specialized waste management company).

Dental Waste Management

Our disposal services

The services of DENTAL ECO SERVICE GmbH meet the specific needs of dental practices. Unlike general industrial waste management companies, DENTAL ECO SERVICE GmbH handles all types of dental waste and therefore provides an uncomplicated way for dental practices to dispose of waste material.

It is required by law that dental practices use a heavy metal separator to separate amalgam from waste water. This waste material is collected in single-use collection containers. These containers are collected and stored in one of our 24 worldwide collection points and shipped to Austria in specific intervals by forwarding companies authorized to transport hazardous goods. Small quantities may also be shipped by the national postal office under strict observation of packaging directives. The amalgam waste is treated and recycled by RECYCO DENT GmbH. The remaining waste is then turned over to authorized recycling and disposal companies.

Aside from transport logistics, DENTAL ECO SERVICE GmbH also supports dentists in the implementation of waste regulations and offers practice refurbishment measures, such as the removal of amalgam deposits in plumbing systems.
