Is there a "cheap" way to recover metallic silver from the fixing bath? (from any fixing bath? - I use hypo most of the time, though)

How about some electrolysis process? But how?

It would be even nicer if it becomes possible to recover the fixer at the same time too...

If you know some method it could be interesting to try out... as long as it's not
deadly insane as making silver nitrate!


I'm curious, are interested in silver recovery because you think it's an environmental hazard, or do you intend to sell-back the silver for cash?

If it's to save the environment, that concern was nearly beaten to death a few months ago on this forum. I'll offer no further comment in that regard.
