4 Do’s and 1 Don’t For Shipping Your Dental Scrap Materials
Shipping your material to a refinery should not be a difficult process. You should be able to rely on your refiner to provide the logistics of your material to make sure it is securely and properly received.
Here are 4 Tips for Shipping Your material:
- Do ensure that your material is shipped in a secure and marked plastic container. Our collection containers contain non-specific labels, which means no one will be aware of it contents. It is sturdy with a secure top for shipping.
- Do include a packing slip and label on all containers. When we provide you with a collection container we include a return label for your convenience. Simply contact us when you are ready to ship or alternatively we can create scheduled monthly or quarterly scheduled pickups.
- Do track your shipment. Every shipment will contain a tracking number. Make sure to keep this tracking number handy so you can refer to it if needed.
- Do weigh your material. It’s very important that you weigh your material. Read more here about why you should weigh your material.
DON’T work with a refinery that does not provide you with paperwork on the receiving weight. We’ve heard many refiners do not provide paperwork on the weight of what was used and processed. Protecting yourself is important.
