    Disposal of Photographic Films and Papers


    Representative Kodak photographic films and papers, both processed and unprocessed, were tested using the U.S. EPA’s Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP). These representative samples did not exhibit the Toxicity Characteristic (TC). In addition, these photographic films and papers do not exhibit the other hazardous waste characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, or reactivity.
    In a few cases, Kodak specialty films used in aerial photography, industrial X-ray, microscopy and nitrate based films may have additional disposal requirements. Please contact KES with specific product information if you are in need of additional information on the disposal of these films.
    As a result, most Kodak films and papers are not considered hazardous wastes based on U.S. Federal regulations and can be disposed of safely in a municipal or industrial landfill. This does not pre-empt state or local laws and programs. Contact your state and local governments to determine if any additional disposal requirements apply.
    Even though most Kodak films and papers can be disposed of safely in a municipal or industrial landfill, your business may want to consider a more environmentally sound option.
