Are you getting new dentures and don’t know what to do with your old ones?
Donate your old dentures
Usually you replace your dentures every 3 to 5 years. If you don’t donate them at your dentist office they are probably laying around collecting dust at your house. Put them to good use.
The Japan Denture Recycling Association, is a nonprofit organization since December 2006. JDRA recycles the metal from used dentures and donates the money to UNICEF to support underprivileged children in the world.
All you have to do is sanitize the dentures. You can do so by boiling some water and placing the dentures in a glass bowl and pour water over the dentures. Let the dentures soak until water is cool. Remove dentures, dry off, wrap in plastic wrap and place in envelope or small box and mail them off.
