    hi toddb

    i use it until it is exhausted,
    then i remove the silver from it with a silver magnet,
    then i put it through a trickle tank,
    then i stick it in a 15gallon drum and have a waste hauler take it away.

    see signature ...

    I stockpile my used fixer from my home darkroom and bring it to my university twice a year to dump it into our silver recovery system. Since I'm graduating in a month though, I'll have to figure out another way to do it...can't keep bringing it to school since it's 5 hours from home.

    You might ask your local universities or community colleges with darkrooms, if there are any, if you can bring it to them.
