Silver Recovery

Since 1974 B & D Associates has been providing on-site silver recovery services and paying “top dollar” for all silver waste and silver by-products

We create silver recovery and recycling solutions to help organizations just like yours with environmental compliance, including EPA laws as well as state and local regulations.

While some silver-containing wastes are not technically classified as "hazardous wastes" they are still toxic and should not be released into the environment. That’s why there are federal, state and local regulations to require the removal of silver from photo chemical waste in order to meet discharge limits.

We can provide the correct system for your application no matter what your discharge rate or amount of chemical you discharge.
