Celebrate Earth Day by Updating Your X-Ray Disposal Practices

Earth Day is April 22nd and a great time to take a look at your business and ensure you’re doing everything you can to protect the environment. As a medical office, one of the most important places to start is with the proper disposal of your x-rays. Don’t throw out your x-rays! Protect the environment and your patients’ privacy by recycling them. As the area experts in x-ray recycling for Wilmington, we would like to tell you more about it and what makes it such an essential task to consider–especially on Earth Day.

Businesses that use and process x-ray films often have thousands of films in storage that need to be properly disposed of. Today, the ideal way to remove this material is to use x-ray film recycling. Unlike other materials that can be recycled, x-ray films must be given special care.

X-ray recycling from Resource Data Management offers a safe, easy and efficient way to dispose of your office’s old x-rays. X-ray film is made of PET plastic and is coated with silver, a rare earth mineral and a precious metal. So, when you throw away x-rays you are not only putting PET plastic, but valuable silver, in the garbage and ultimately, in the landfill. By recycling x-rays instead of throwing them away you can help prevent more waste from piling up in the nation’s landfills.

And, here at RDM, we are committed to being environmentally responsible.
