You will need to swap out the collection container located at the bottom of the amalgam separator for recycling. The frequency with which you change the collection container depends upon the size and volume of your practice. The container will need to be replaced once the sediment reaches the full line or once a year (whichever comes first). The good news is, Solmetex does all of the hard work and disposes of the mercury under federal guidelines for you!
All you have to do is disconnect the old collection container and ship it in the provided recycling kit box to Solmetex. Simply insert the new collection container, and you’re ready to go!
Included in the Kit:
- Solmetex box for shipping and recycling
- Shipping label
- Recycling documentation
