Lithographic Silver

Film used in photography or x-rays, microfiche originals (no stripe across top), and photographic fixer contain lithographic silver, which is a hazardous waste. Do not put any materials that contain silver into the garbage.

Environmental Health & Safety recycles these materials and reclaims the silver. For more information, see the EH&S Silver Filtering and Recycling page.

Note: Microfiche copies (stripe across top) can be recycled as eMedia.
