Responsible E-Cycling for X-Ray Films

X-ray film users and processors often have a large number of films in storage that need proper disposal. X-ray film recycling is the ideal method to handle this material. Unlike other recyclable materials, x-ray films require special handling due to the presence of silver. Here are the top reasons why x-ray recycling should be your primary disposal choice:

  • Safety: X-ray films contain silver, which requires expert removal by a specialized recycling firm.
  • Confidentiality: The sensitive information captured in x-rays necessitates careful handling to maintain confidentiality agreements.
  • Storage: Storing x-rays for an extended period occupies valuable space, which can be better utilized for other activities.
  • Sustainability: Recycling x-rays reduces landfill debris and contributes to environmental conservation efforts.

At DTG Recycle, we want to help you save time, money, and most importantly, our environment. We offer FREE business pickups for qualified E-Scrap over 500lbs. Pickup charges apply to residential loads.

The X-Ray Recycling Process

At DTG Recycle, we follow a unique process for the destruction and recycling of x-rays. As soon as the x-rays are collected from medical practitioners, we begin extracting the films from their paper envelopes, followed by crushing them into smaller fragments. The silver is then separated from the x-ray material and plastic using a specific cleaner. Even x-ray plastic can be recycled and repurposed for other uses.

Importance of Confidentiality

DTG Recycle prioritizes the confidentiality of our medical provider customers and their x-ray recycling. We understand the significance of adhering to HIPAA policies for protecting medical records. Our company is HIPAA compliant and certified to handle x-rays, ensuring that your patient trust and compliance are maintained.
