Title:SCRAP DENTAL AMALGAM
RCRA Online Number:11457
Date:08/17/1989
To:Micucci
From:Petruska
Organization of Recipient:Bellevue Medical Building
Description: Dental silver amalgam is not specifically listed as a hazardous waste. The American Dental Association (ADA) research suggests amalgam does not exhibit extraction procedure (EP) toxicity (SUPERSEDED: See 261.24), but the burden of determination is ultimately the generator's. ADA data could be the basis of a determination by knowledge. CERCLA 107 liability is independent of the material’s regulatory status under RCRA.
