Photographic Chemical Collection

Our Metals Division collects waste chemistry in either 20-litre containers or 1,000-litre IBCs.

Waste chemistry is returned to local State facilities where it is put through in-house Silver Recovery Units to extract the silver content. Once processed, the waste chemistry is automatically discharged to sewer and the harvested silver is then shipped to our refinery in Melbourne for further processing.

Our chemical collection services are licensed by the EPA and our treatment facilities have Trade Waste Agreements issued by local water authorities allowing us to discharge the waste after treatment.

Our Pollution Incident Response Plan for treatment at Frenchs Forest is available here.

Our Pollution Incident Response Plan for transport of chemicals is available here.
