Photo and X-ray waste

Chemicals, film, photo paper and disposable cameras; a whole range of photographic waste is generated at photo laboratories and all of the different substances need to be treated with extra special care. The same is true for X-rays from hospitals and doctors' surgeries.  REMONDIS UK ensures that all the recyclable materials contained in the waste will be recovered and returned to production cycles. All collection, analysis and treatment processes are continuously monitored and this information is then stored. We guarantee that all non-recyclable residual substances are disposed of using safe and environmentally sound processes.
