• General waste and recycling – dentistry is already tightly regulated in terms of clinical waste and alongside this we undertake non-clinical waste audits. This has seen us introduce a more uniform system across each location to increase recycling levels whilst generating a more thoughtful reduction in general waste
  • Recycling oral health items – our Harleigh Road Dental Centre is a registered Colgate TerraCycle location for patients and the wider community to deposit items for recycling. We also have smaller collection points at each Smile Together location, provide well-labelled recycled (and recyclable) plastic bins for Brighter Smiles schools and nurseries to engage (especially those running toothbrushing clubs) and take a bin with us during #SmilesAtSeaUK! We promote this and collect as much as we can for recycling as every kilogram earns TerraCycle points, redeemable into financial donations for us to reinvest back into our community!
