Pease & Curren, a precious metals refiner/recycler for over a century, aids in educating and disposing of dental and medical X-ray film.

In recent years ground water contamination has been a topic of great concern to businesses around the globe. Proper disposal of hazardous metals is paramount. Dental X-ray, manufacturing and photography film are known to contain heavy metals such as silver which if not disposed of properly can become a hazard to the environment. The heavy metals found in dental X-rays for instance can leach into the ground and cause harm to the water supply and/or damage the environment. It is important to send film to an EPA compliant facility for proper disposal. Pease & Curren is an EPA compliant facility. Certificates of destruction are available upon request as are free containers to send the materials in.

Silver is recovered from the film and the customer is given the profits from the sweep. Pease & Curren also recovers precious metals from:


Electroplating solution Floor sweeps Casting sprues Platinum foil
Wipes/paper towels Carpeting Buttons Platinum wire
Suction filters Bridges/crowns Grindings X-ray film
