Amalgam Separators - Dental Recycling North America


Free Amalgam Separator for VDA members

DRNA is your complete 360-degree solution for amalgam separators and waste management. The new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rule requires dental practices to install amalgam separators and recycle the waste annually by July 2020.

While the EPA rule makes installing an amalgam separator mandatory, paying for one is most definitely not! As a benefit of membership, the VDA has arranged for its dentists to receive a FREE amalgam separator when signing up for DRNA’s low-cost recycling service with a 3 or 5-year service agreement. [1]  This is an $850 savings for being a member of the VDA! 2

Please call DRNA at 800-360-1001 Ext. 2 to receive your FREE amalgam separator

Already have an amalgam separator?

DRNA provides special pricing for VDA members when replacing your Hg5®3 amalgam recycling cartridge with DRNA’s generic cartridge. The DRNA amalgam cartridge works with your dental office’s dental amalgam recycling unit at a fraction of the price of the brand-name cartridges, and has been successfully tested to ISO 11143 standard and certified by NSF International.

DRNA’s price for VDA members is $210 for its replacement amalgam recycling cartridge, recycling included – over a 40% savings from the brand name cartridge sold by a major dental dealer4. As an added bonus, buy two replacement cartridges and only pay $195 for each cartridge.

Please call DRNA at 800-360-1001 Ext. 2 to order your generic cartridge.


[1]  Receive a free unit when you sign a 3- or 5-year recycling agreement at $500/year for the BU10-5 and $750/year for the BU10-30, inclusive of all costs.
