Dental (Amalgam) Waste Bins – White Clinical Waste Bags
White clinical waste bins are used to hold all sorts of dental amalgam waste. Understandably they’re mostly used by dentists to dispose of the materials used to fill cavities, but hospitals, healthcare, and other similar facilities may need them. They’re essential to separate dental waste from other similar types of clinical waste such as anatomical waste.
You can use a white clinical waste bin to store:
- Unwanted amalgam
- Excess amalgam that’s not usable
- Teeth with fillings
- Capsules containing residues
- Packaging containing residues
Please note – only dental and amalgam waste can go into these bins
Arrange delivery of white clinical waste bins to your dental practice or healthcare facility to ensure your waste amalgam storage is safe and legal before it’s collected for disposal. Learn more about dental waste.
Daily, weekly, fortnightly or ad hoc collection

Why do I need
amalgam waste bins?
Whether you run a dental clinic, hospital, or other healthcare organisation – if you deal with amalgam waste of any type then it’s your responsibility to dispose of it safely and securely. You have both a legal and ethical responsibility to ensure it’s stored properly to avoid contamination with other waste and risk harming human health or the environment.
As amalgam waste classes as hazardous due to containing low levels of mercury, it can release this as a vapour if it ends up in landfill. This may leach into surrounding soil and water supplies, polluting the environment. Plus, if the teeth, fillings, or amalgam has come from someone infectious then it can harm anyone who comes into contact with it.
White clinical waste bins are designed to only hold amalgam waste. They provide a safe and simple way to store dental waste on your premises before collection. Our licensed waste carriers can collect your white waste bins and transport to a nearby facility for appropriate amalgam waste disposal.
As dental waste can be hazardous and infectious, normally it will be incinerated. However, it must also be treated using a mercury recovery process before complete disposal.
clinical waste bags
White waste bins hold dental and amalgam waste but if your organisation produces any other type of clinical waste, you’ll need other bags and bins for its storage and disposal. Other colours of clinical waste bags include:
