CDM Waste Management Guidelines
Scrap X-ray film contains silver, a hazardous waste, and must be collected. Spent film must be collected in the “Scrap Film Collection Containers” located near the film developing units. Do not place any other items except for film into the containers. Please remove the film from any protective covers prior to putting it in the film collection containers. Scrap X-ray film may not be thrown into the regular trash or regulated medical waste.
