Environdent offers free and environmentally responsible disposal of your old instruments – regardless of brand – and rewards you with new Hu-Friedy instruments that help you perform at your best. It's easy: for any 12 instruments you recycle, you receive 1 Hu-Friedy instrument, absolutely free.
- Collect your old instruments.
Gather old or unwanted instruments of any brand and pack the instruments into a box for shipment. OSHA regulations and state health laws mandate that all returned instruments be cleaned and heat sterilized prior to shipping. Remember to cushion the products to prevent package damage during shipment. Note: A small, flat rate box can hold 60 instruments!
- Send your instruments to recycler.
Log in to Environdent.com and complete our online recycling order form. Indicate the instruments you're returning and the free instrument(s) you would like to receive. We'll send you an email with a printable shipping label and a printable packing slip that contains your order details. If you want to be able to track your shipment to the recycler, we recommend sending your package via your preferred carrier that offers shipping tracking and confirmation. We will send you an email confirmation when your order is received by the recycler and approved for processing. Please note that first-time users must register for an Environdent account in order to log in to create an order.
- Receive Hu-Friedy instruments and exclusive offers.
After a short time, your brand new Hu-Friedy instrument(s) will arrive in the mail. You'll also receive exclusive deals on Hu-Friedy instruments and products, in addition to news about green practices that you can implement in your practice and home.
