#Extracted teeth stored at the College of Dentistry for use by students in pre-clinic laboratory are stored in dilute hypochlorite solution (generally a 1:10 dilution). This leached the mercury from the restorations and the solution is picked up by UNL Environmental Health and Safety when the teeth are disposed of at the end of the year.
Electronic trash is disposed using an appropriate channel that can handle the chemical hazards of the item and taking into account the presence or absence of personal health information (PHI). Items containing PHI are disposed in accordance with hospital policy IM14, and UNMC Policy No. 6056, [ Retention and Destruction/Disposal of Private and Confidential Information] . (Examples: CD/DVD, barcode lab label printer ribbons, hard drives, copiers, etc.)
