Simplifying Compliance: How to Replace and Recycle Generic Amalgam Cartridges with DRNA

By DSD | September 28, 2023

In the world of dental practice compliance, staying on top of regulations while providing top-notch patient care is a must. Amalgam separators and recycling cartridges play a crucial role in achieving this balance, and at DRNA (Dental Recycling North America), we’ve made the process as simple as possible for our valued customers.

Why Replace and Recycle?

Amalgam separators are vital for capturing mercury-containing amalgam waste before it enters the water supply. To maintain peak efficiency and ensure compliance with regulations, it’s essential to replace and recycle your amalgam cartridges regularly. DRNA’s generic amalgam recycling cartridges should be replaced and recycled every 12 months or as soon as the sediment fill line is reached, whichever occurs first.

How DRNA Simplifies the Process

We understand that compliance can be a complex task, so we’ve streamlined the process to make it as easy as possible for our customers.

Step 1: Recognize the Time for Replacement

The first step is recognizing when it’s time to replace your generic amalgam recycling cartridge. Keep an eye on your unit, and as soon as you see that the sediment fill line has been reached, it’s time for a replacement. You can also stick to the recommended annual replacement schedule to ensure consistent compliance if your fill line isn’t reached after 12 months.

Step 2: Contact DRNA

Once you’ve determined that it’s time for a replacement, simply reach out to DRNA. You can contact us via phone or email, and our friendly support team will be ready to assist you. Let us know if you need a replacement cartridge, and we’ll take care of the rest. Or, feel free to visit our online store to order your replacement cartridge:

Step 3: We Send You a Shipping Label

We want to make the process as convenient as possible for you. Once you request it, DRNA will provide the office with a prepaid UPS label via email. No need to worry about postage or additional costs—it’s all included in the price of your cartridge.  The next time UPS is at your office, you can hand them over the box with the label printed and taped to it. As an additional method, you can drop it off at the closest UPS drop-off site.

Step 4: Send Back Your Used Cartridge

Once you receive the shipping label, all that’s left to do is package your used cartridge securely and send it back to us using the provided label. You can drop it off at your nearest post office or schedule a pick-up—whatever works best for you.

Step 5: We Handle the Recycling

Once we receive your used cartridge, our team takes care of the recycling process. We ensure that your amalgam waste is disposed of properly and in accordance with environmental regulations. You can rest assured, knowing you’re doing your part to protect the environment.
