About X-Ray Recycling

  • X-ray films are processed in a refinery to extract the silver.
  • The x-ray films are heated using temperatures of over 1,000 degrees celsius.
  • The silver is extracted and converted into a more pure silver form.
  • The silver can then be reused for things such as silver solder, jewellery, the silver plating of utensils, electrical components and film manufacture.
  • CMA EcoCycle Australia and Siltech will safely and confidentially destroy your records, however if you dispose of these yourself send just the film.
