Professional X-ray Recycling

Contact the experts at Resource Data Management or fill out our online form. One of our X-ray film recycling specialists will obtain the details of your film recycling requirements and the volumes involved. We will arrange the pickup of your film.

Why Recycle

X-ray recycling is simply the right thing to do for not only for the environment, but for your patients as well. The main component of an x-ray film is PET plastic, and it is coated with silver, a rare earth mineral and the precious metal we are all familiar with. So, throwing away an x-ray means you are putting PET plastic and silver in the trash, which ultimately goes to a landfill.

In records management, there is a lifecycle that corresponds to the stages that each record undergoes. This lifecycle covers everything from the creation of a record to its disposal. Different policies and procedures exist at each phase. It begins with the creation of the document and ends with disposal or preservation of it. Different programs, software, and educational materials may use different names for the phases, but they are basically fixed and operate concurrently and continuously. Here’s is its typical order:

1. Creation. The first phase in a record’s lifecycle, creation involves the receipt of a record and classification of it as a record in an organization’s records management system. Ensure that you create records correctly, which means including the right information and using the proper format.

2. Use & modification. This is when people use and modify am active record. Active records are those that are in current use and often within close physical proximity to the people using them.

3. Protection. As the record or document is in use It continues as a record and you must maintain and protect it from several things, including unauthorized access and damage. Those who need records on a regular basis must have easy access to them. We can help you keep your records safe in all phases of its lifecycle with our records management services. Even if someone is not regularly accessing an inactive record, you must maintain and protect it.

4. Maintain. The length of time that you must maintain a record differs based on several factors, including company policy and government rules and regulations. You need to keep some records forever and, therefore, institute an archival process at some point.

5. Dispose or archive. At the end of a record’s lifecycle, the records management team must decide whether to destroy or preserve the record. Within records management, systems exist to determine what happens to each record and when. Our records management can offer comprehensive document storage for documents you’d like to keep and proper disposal of those you no longer want.
