Dental Amalgam

Organization(s) New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description Several best management practices for the reduction of dental amalgam waste will be included in an upcoming draft of the revised NJ DEP New Jersey Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NJPDES) rules. The draft rule will require dentists to install amalgam separators and to adhere to amalgam waste handling Best Management Practices (BMPs) similar to those established by the American Dental Association. The NJ Small Business Assistance Program (SBAP) will be taking the lead on conducting outreach to dentists on this upcoming rule requirement.
