I replied on this matter in post #20.
But just now I understand the idea behind: disposing it as solid waste.

-) Well, being dumped in a landfill this procedure would be environmentally absurd (as landfills as such...)

-) Being incinerated the silver at is best would land in the exhaust filter, otherwise in the sludge and then most probably ending in the environment again.

This being legal shows the absurdity in same waste disposol regulations.
