Specialist Waste Disposal Services For Amalgam & Hazardous Dental Waste
Every dental practice in the UK produces hazardous waste such as amalgam separators, sterilisers, lead foils, cleaning chemicals, X-ray fixer and developer, and various other specialist items. All of these items are classified as hazardous waste under UK legislation and must be properly stored and disposed of to keep customers and staff safe and protect the environment.
At Direct365 we have years of experience in supporting dental surgeries with their hazardous waste needs and our expert service is flexible and fully compliant with the law. We’ll provide you with safe and secure waste bins and a discrete collection service to ensure that the waste is disposed of responsibly at a licensed facility.

Dental Hygiene Waste Disposal Services With Flexible Collections

The most common and effective way to dispose of offensive or infectious waste in your dental practice is with our yellow and black striped bags, or ‘tiger bags’.

Safe & Reliable Pharmaceutical Waste Disposal For Your Dental Practice
No matter how much pharmaceutical waste your dentist practice produces, it is a legal requirement to ensure that it is disposed of and destroyed in accordance with the law. Pharmaceuticals including pain relief and anaesthetic drugs are classified in the European Waste Catalogue as EWC 18-01-08 & 18-01-09 and can pose a serious risk to the environment if they are not disposed of responsibly.
We’ll ensure that all of your dental surgery’s drug waste is disposed of safely and securely within our secure pharmaceutical waste bins. Available in 5, 7, 11.5 and 22 litre options, our bins are legally compliant and manufactured to the safest standard for disposing of your pharmaceutical waste.
You can choose the right service for your practice, with weekly, fortnightly or monthly collections of your waste to suit your needs. We’ll even provide you with a full waste consignment note with each collection for your records to keep your surgery legally compliant.
