Ecocycle Boosts Mercury Recycling At ADX2016 Sydney

Ecocycle is proud to have been a major sponsor of Australia’s largest dental exhibition, ADX16, held in Sydney last month.

The Ecocycle Café and Ecocycle Drinks helped to raise awareness of the brand and, more importantly, spark interest in amalgam recycling by dental practices that haven’t yet installed amalgam separators.

Also giving a boost to the cause of safe mercury waste disposal was a product showcase presentation by Ecocycle’s dental specialist, Mr Ian Crawford.

His talk, Removing Mercury From Our Environment And Waterways – Managing Its Discharge, was aimed at ensuring everyone recycles amalgam waste in the correct manner. It’s a message backed by the Australian Dental Association, state EPAs, the water industry and the Federal Government.

Outstanding response

“The response to our presence at ADX16 was outstanding,” said Mr Crawford.

“We fielded enquiries from dentists, dental nurses, practice managers, service technicians and government representatives, and there’s no doubt that many more dental practices will install amalgam separators as a result of talking to us at the show.”

Beyond amalgam waste management solutions, Ecocycle also promoted the recycling of the x-ray films, developer and fixer that are often generated by dental clinics.

E-waste impact continues to grow

Without a doubt the impact of e-waste continues to grow with its significant impact on the environment.     Indeed, only 12% of the nation’s computers are recycled. At this time, Australia is the fourth highest generator of e-waste per capita in the world.  Poorly managed e-waste means heavy metals and hazardous waste such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants leak into the environment.  Clearly, the risks of data leaks are also increased if the device’s storage aren’t carefully treated.
