Then there is the federal EPA regulation that you properly manage your Amalgam waste.

It can get complicated, but our all-inclusive program has you covered. The days of trying to find someone to take your varies types of waste is over because at ASWH we do it all. One-stop shopping for all your dental waste disposal needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have any minimum service requirements?

On-demand customers utilize our services as required without a minimum. Automatic clients can adjust their schedule at any time.  

However, under certain circumstances, if the quoted price was based on a specific volume of waste and that volume consistently falls short, then stop minimum may apply. (e.g. quoted price based on 25 boxes per month and client averages 5 boxes per month).

Do you have recurring monthly surcharges or additional fees?

No.

What can go in your medical waste box?

Locked sharps containers and any items contaminated with blood or other potentially infectious materials. Some common items are pads, tubing, gloves, dressings, disposable instruments, etc.

4.5 Cu. Ft. (18x18x24”)

Where does my waste go when it leaves my facility?

Waste is transported directly from your facility to one of our company-owned and operated licensed treatment facilities. With Approved, there is no subcontracting, so waste goes from your facility to ours for same-day processing.
