Re: Used X-Ray Developer



I am not an expert, nor do I pretend to be, but the main concerns in the fixer/developer is the silver and the pH.  A few years back, I recall a similar situation where a veterinarian had a silver recycler pick up the waste for recycling a minimal to no cost. Some facilities have small silver recycling units on-site, then adjust the pH before disposal to the sanitary sewer system.  This may be something long-term.  As an FYI, one of our local hospitals will be converting to digital x-rays to eliminate fixer and developer use.
