NXT Hg5 Collection Container with Recycle Kit

At the center of our amalgam separation system is the proven recycling container. Once you’re set up with an Hg5 amalgam separator system that fits your practice, you’ll need to exchange the lower container when it fills up. Depending on the size and volume of your practice, the container will need to be replaced with a new one once the sediment reaches the full line or once a year (whichever comes first). The good news is, we do all of the hard work and dispose of the mercury under federal guidelines for you. All you have to do is disconnect the old collection container and ship it in the provided box to our recycling facility. Reconnect the new one and you’re ready to go. Keeping harmful mercury out of the environment has never been easier.
