Do you know of anyone who collects spent developer from processing x-rays,
photos, etc. I fielded a phone call from DelTech asking if it was okay to
discharge the spent chemicals used to develop x-rays to the sewer. Because of
the amount and nature of the chemicals used, dumping it to the sewer poses
minimal risk to the sewerage system and should be okay; the only potential
problem is the silver. I advised the person from DelTech to collect and store
the spent developer until I can get a clear answer on dumping it into the
sewer. That begs the question of how other dental offices and hospitals, etc.
deal with disposal of these chemicals and whether there is anyone who would
anxiously collect it and recover the silver at no cost to the facility
generating the waste. The person with whom I spoke seemed to be concerned
about the cost of collecting and having someone else dispose of this waste.
Sounds like a prime opportunity for P2. Do you have any info I can relay to
