Dark Room Waste Management

The photographic developing process involves many types of chemicals. Many of the common processes used generate hazardous waste. For example spent fixer often contains silver, which is regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Unused chemicals such as stop bath are acidic, and are also regulated under RCRA.
