Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

How often should I replace my amalgam buckets?
In order to remain in clear compliance with the EPA regulations and suggestions, DRNA recommends replacing your Chairside Amalgam Buckets every 12 months or once filled, whichever occurs first.

How do I get a new bucket replacement?
We make this easy with our Bucket Compliance Program. We’ll automatically ship your office a new bucket every year so that you remain fully compliant. As soon as you receive your new amalgam bucket, simply reach out to our office to get your shipping label and call UPS to have the amalgam bucket picked up and we’ll take care of the proper recycling for you.

Is there some sort of certificate of proof that I am recycling this properly and being compliant?
Of course! We provide our amalgam bucket customers with a Compliance Certificate each year with their amalgam bucket order.
