Lisa,

You recently posed a question about recovering silver from
radiographies and film scraps. You indicated that this question was
posed on behalf of a P2 office in Santiago, Chile.

SHWEC has developed a DRAFT fact sheet addressing a variety of P2
opportunities for lithographic printers w.r.t. managing developer, fixer,
wash baths, and scrap film. We would be glad to send you a copy of the
draft.

The draft fact sheet covers US requirements and lists WI area silver
recycling/recover companies. Since, you are looking for this information
for an office in Chile, I think that a good place for you to start may be by
contacting Film manufacturers, recoverers, etc.; therefore, I have included
a partial list below:

3M Corporation
800/944-6664

Agfa of Miles, Inc.
201/440-0111, x4778

Fuji Hunt Photographic Chemical
800/526-0851

Fuji Photo Film USA, Inc.
800/743-3854

Kodak (Env. Services)
800/242-2424, ext. 724 for recycling

Konica USA, Inc.
800/285-6422

Polaroid Corporation
617/386-3548

Polychrome Corporation
201/531-0032
