Instructions for use
Due to the potentially harmful mercury content, amalgam waste should never be thrown away with general waste. Instead, it should be stored safely within the appropriate container until collected by your PHS representative.

Solutions should not be added and the mercury suppressant foam should not be removed. Care should also be taken to ensure the lid is tightly secured and the mercury vapours are not inhaled.
