I was wondering about the disposal of film. I understand that B/W film has a lot of silver but color film apparently does not. Can you just take old film to your local Hazmat disposal area. We have a Hazmat disposal at our dump every third Saturday and I could ask them next time I am disposing of house paints. However does anyone know about disposal of films. I got on this topic as I was thinking about processing my own B/W films at home but after reading the MSDS on the chemicals I decided I do not want to take that on especially since I am on a septic system. Now I am wondering if I should stop shooting B/W film. I do have a few decades of film and half of it could be disposed of. I plan or going through the shoeboxes as a new years resolution. I will dispose of the film and probably will take it to the Hazmat day at the county dump. I try to leave a light footprint as I move through life. I commute to work on a bicycle (Surly Long Haul Trucker) and my wife and I share a single care that gets 38mpg mixed driving (Honda Fit). Generally we avoid buying chemicals and our garden and lawns are organic. Recycling is a standard around here. Anyway I am trying and that means learning. I am here to learn from the experts on this forum about film. Thanks.
