Silver recovery from X-Ray film x-ray film recycling

Our silver recovery is 100% Eco-Friendly, we generate almost 0% wast to landfill. B.W. Recycling, Inc is becoming ISO 14001 as well as R2 Certified for our electronics recycling department.

Everything is Recycled

B.W. Recycling, Inc also recycles the PET plastic from the film and paper envelopes and folders as well as the cardboard boxes which the film and other material comes in.

The actual silver recovery process

BW Recycling, Inc uses an advanced film washing system which enables us to remove 99.99% of the silver on the x-ray film. By the time we are done with washing the film from the silver, the film becomes little flakes of PET plastic ready to be re-used in any other application such as plastic bottles or back to the film industry.
