Re: Dental Waste Management
From May through December of 1998, the Ohio Dental Association conducted a
collection program for dental mercury throughout Ohio. They were successful
in removing 838 pounds of mercury. A contact person for the Dental
Association is Chris Moore. He can be reached at (614) 486-2700.
Also, Bowling Green State University has an elemental mercury collection
program. This program has been active for the past two years and is
conducted in conjunction with the Ohio EPA and Rader Environmental
Services, Inc. We have collected sources of elemental mercury from
residents, businesses, industry, academic institutions, medical facilities,
etc. from throughout Ohio and from neighboring states. This program is free
of charge and we have collected over 1600 pounds of elemental mercury. If
you would like more info on the program, please e-mail me or you can visit
our web site at: http://www.bgsu.edu/offices/envhs/mercury.htm.
If I can assist any further, just let me know.
