Virginia Dental Mercury Collection Program

Virginia Dental Association

Program Description   The Virginia Dental Association has worked with the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to coordinate a system of collection sites for dental offices that have antiquated supplies of elemental mercury. The VDA contracted with a mercury recycler to collect the mercury at 22 VDH collection sites. The collection was held from April 1 to May 31, 2000, resulting in the collection of more than 400 pounds of mercury.
