B & D Associates, Inc. is a New England company that has been recycling regulated wastes since 1974. One of the services we provide is X-Ray Film Recycling Maine. In Maine the current statute (always call the State to make sure you have the latest regulations) is for records to be kept 7 years or 6 years past the date of majority, whichever is later. When it comes to purge these files make sure to call Andy at B & D Associates.

When choosing a X-Ray Film Recycling Maine company the most important factor is to make sure they are HIPAA compliant. They should be signing a Business Associate Agreement or BAA with you. This document basically states they are accepting responsibility for your records to maintain the privacy or your clients. Also make sure they issue a Certificate of Destruction for your records.

Pricing is very important, at B & D Associates we have been X-Ray Film Recycling Maine for almost 40 years. We have had along time to perfect the process to get you the highest yield. We also have staff on hand to conduct the full purge for you to your specifications.

As people are unaware I also want to point out there are thieves that prey on medical facilities for this commodity. As X-Ray Film Recycling Maine has a current high value people are pretending to be a reputable company or your current vendor and try to take the film without paying you.  B & D Associates is happy to provide you with a significant advance if the material is in envelopes or full payment on the spot if it is all ready stripped. As a leader in the industry we have even been quoted by major news publications.

B & D Associates warns those with X ray Film Recycling about Theft

In September of this year, two men walked into three Philadelphia area hospitals, said they were there to pick up old Xray films for disposal and calmly walked out with barrels of old film.
But the two men were not from the silver recycling company that normally picked up old X-rays for silver recycling.  “Given the tough economy and high silver prices, it’s no wonder that X ray Film Recycling thefts are on the rise across the country,“ said Andrew Thornton of B & D Associates.

One component of the emulsion on an X-ray Film is silver. During the silver recycling process, the silver is released from the emulsion. As a result, thieves and con artists across the country are beginning to steal X ray film for recycling at hospitals, veterinary offices and other places where X ray film is used.
“As a silver recycling company, we have a HIPAA compliant process for safely removing, transporting, and storing X ray film prior to recycling the film, extracting Silver, and destroying the film,” Thornton explained. ”It’s important for hospitals and other enterprises working with X ray film to have processes in place that keep X ray films safe from thievery and also protect patient confidentiality.”
The same holds true with the value of silver flake.  If you treat your own fixer on-site for discharge, be aware of who has access to your electrolytic silver flake.

To keep film safe from theft, store archived X rays and old Xray Film slated for silver recycling under lock and key.  Limit access to the locked storage area to those with direct responsibility for contacting the contracted silver recycling firm. When film is scheduled for removal by the silver recycling company, the employee who calls to schedule the pickup should always be the one to give the recycler access.

When choosing a vendor for x ray film recycling make sure they are a licensed X ray Film Recycling Facility. Use Google Maps satelite imaging to determine if the address of the company that you are considering is an actual commercial building or a residence.  Search the vendor for any violations they may have had.  Always check for references and copies of their insurance.
