Silver Reclamation Services
Silver is a heavy metal. It is an EPA listed hazardous waste (D011) for toxicity.
Silver is contained in many different types of electronics and other equipment used by a variety of industries. Because of its hazardous nature, silver must be handled differently than other types of waste. This type of disposal must be performed by a professional trained in the silver reclamation process. BWS provides this service in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.
The EPA and Maryland Department of the Environment consider BWS to be a Destination Facility for the recovery of silver. We transport liquids containing waste silver, such as waste from x-ray fixer, under a hazardous waste manifest to our secure Baltimore warehouse. There we process the liquids in our electrolytic recovery unit and extract the toxic silver.
BWS also disposes x-rays with silver waste, recovering the silver to prevent toxic landfill contamination and destroying confidential information as part of its overall HIPAA compliance program.
BWS can also install and maintain in-line silver recovery systems.
Your waste is your responsibility until it is destroyed – even after it has left your facilities. Because of this, it is crucial that you trust a company with a proven track record silver reclamation. BWS has a combined 70 years of experience in this area and has the expertise to handle your waste appropriately.
