Recycling centers that accept: Photographic Chemicals
Photographic chemicals contain harmful chemicals and are not recyclable. They should not be poured down inside or outside drains or on the ground as it can cause contamination.
For B&W processing, try using the less toxic phenidone/hydroquinone developers and low-acid fixers. For color processing, avoid using phenylene diamine developers and using low oil/solvent color processes.
The silver from the film that accumulates in the developing solution is recyclable. Check the manufacturer information on recovering silver.
If the chemicals cannot be used up or given away, then read the manufacturer’s instructions on proper disposal on the label. As a last resort, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask how to dispose of this hazardous waste for a small fee.
