Selenium Disposal : LUSENET : Black_and_White_Photography : One Thread

Anyone have any thoughts/ideas on disposal of selenium. My darkroom is at home which is on a septic/leachfield system. I recapture and truck all my chemicals into a processor in town, but he won't take selenium or potassium ferricyanide.

I mix selenium with H20 instead of hypo clear so I can reuse it, minimize my waste volume, and make it easier to separate out. Has anyone tried an evaporation technique?

Thanks for the help. -Doug

Kodak has a referral service to help processors dispose of their chemicals safely. The phone number I have is a couple of years old. It's: 1-716-477-3194. I hope that's still current. You may want to log onto Kodak's web site ( if you need more info.
