Porter's Camera sells an electrolytic silver recovery kit (http://porters.com/Merchant2/merchan...Category_Code=) for about $46. Supposedly if you go through a gallon of fixer a week, you will get 30-50 troy ounces of silver a year. Once the "silver magnet" is full you send it to the company that makes it (not Porter's) and they pay you for the silver. A replacement pickup cell costs about $18. I don't know if this is worth it, but at least there is someone you can actually get the silver to and recover some cash.
