Dental Mould Recycling

Dental surgeries and clinics produce hazardous waste that needs to be disposed of in the correct way to adhere to strict legislation. Gypsum in dental moulds reacts with biodegradable waste when landfilled, which produces toxic and odorous hydrogen sulphide gas. Government legislation therefore prevents gypsum waste from going to landfill.

Gypsum Waste Disposal Services

Cannon Hygiene offers an effective recycling stream for waste containing gypsum. In accordance with Environment Agency guidance and Safe Manage of Healthcare Waste, there are two main options when it comes to disposing of non-infectious gypsum waste:

  1. Gypsum recycling
  2. Dumping at specialist landfill sites

Cannon Hygiene were the first company to offer a recycling service for dental study moulds and we are pleased to confirm that our service follows the same recycling route today.
