    Try at a real professional lab. They should have a silver reclamation machine already running.

    For printing, I generally leave it sitting in its tray until it all evaporates (using it all this time), and refill it when it gets too low to cover a piece of paper. The fans on whenever I'm in the darkroom and sometimes when some. Is this a problematic way to do it?

    You will end up with highly concentrated silver in that tray and therefore poor print longevity. You're doing the opposite of two-bath fixing the aim is to have very low silver concentration in the second bath. You can't just avoid the disposal problem entirely.
