The Easy Way to Recycle Those Old X-Rays

Like most areas of imaging, X-rays have gone digital, but there are still large quantities of old, silver-based X-ray film filling up storage space in hospitals and radiology centers all over the country. Do you manage such a practice? Just as vinyl records still have their fans, silver-based films remain in use in some parts of the imaging industry. So if you’re a Tr-State area business – whether it be a hospital, a radiology clinic or any other health service that uses X-ray imaging, then you could be sitting on a pile of X-rays or other types of silver-based film that could be recycled. As the trusted name in x-ray recycling for PA and the entire area, we’ve put together a simple guide for businesses that explains how you can easily clean up on your X-ray film and recycle it.

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.
