Re: Silver Recovery Units
You might want to check to see what hazardous waste regulations are applicable. It might be less trouble than you originally thought. For example, in Ohio, if the facility is a "conditionally exempt small quantity generator" , they can transport their hazardous waste without being a registered transporter. Also, since it is going to be recovered, it might not be a waste. Check with your State EPA. Finding stable containers to transport the fixer might be easier than finding a portable recycling system.

I am working with some dentists on developing P2 for their practices.
They are mainly concerned with fixer from their xray machines.
Many of them are really small practices and don't generate a whole
lot of fixer. A bunch them want to "share" a silver recovery unit.
But there would be HW concerns about transporting, etc. Does anyone
know if there is a portable silver recovery unit that can be
transported between dentists? That way they wouldn't have to be
concerned about transporting the fixer just the machine. Or if
anyone knows if there is another way this could be done I would
Thanks in advance!!
