BMP Educational Resources
The BMP for Amalgam Waste program educates dentists on a series of amalgam waste handling and disposal practices that include but
are not limited to initiating bulk mercury collection programs, using chair side
traps, amalgam separators, inspecting and cleaning traps, and recycling or using
a commercial waste disposal service to dispose of the amalgam collected.
These BMPs include amalgam
separators. Dentists are encouraged to use BMPs to help reduce the effects of
amalgam waste on the environment.
