X-Ray Services


X-Ray Film Disposal

We offer a new solution for disposing of time expired x-ray films for the medical sector.

The technology, which has been developed with an industry leading professional, can set specific parameters to filter the files to ensure only the right ones are extracted and securely destroyed.

It also takes a digital image of the label, including patient ID, so the NHS Trusts not only receive an electronic record but one that can also be searched for in EXEL to help with recovery of information.

All work is carried out in compliance with hospital information governance and medical record policy and many orders have already been successfully completed.

Recycled UK is also working with veterinary practices, private healthcare providers and companies looking to dispose of their industrial x-rays.

How it works

  • An initial viability review and investigation into the financial potential
  • Recycled UK take delivery of files from off-site storage to a secure location
  • We remove files from the hospital’s on-site storage
  • Files are sorted in compliance with hospital information governance and medical records policy
  • Expired files are electronically recorded before being securely destroyed
  • Silver is recovered
  • Payment is sent to the NHS Trust

Benefits of our Vision Imaging Software

  • No upfront fees 
for the NHS Trust, crucial with tighter budgets
  • Top rebate prices 
provide new funding opportunities
  • Secure file destruction
  • Vision imaging used to store destroy files
  • Reduce on-site & off-site storage costs

There were no costs to us and in fact we gained an income from the process

We needed to reduce our overall annual expenditure and we found Recycled UK could potentially save us over £18,000 a year in rental fees.

Plant Investment

All recycling is completed at our 50,000 sq ft centre in the heart of the West Midlands, providing ease of access to the UK’s main motorway networks.

We currently have six shredding and granulating lines, ‘Weima’ and ‘Untha’ shredders, ‘Rapid’ and ‘Cumberland’ granulators along with ‘eddy’ current magnets plus twin bagging stations to ensure speed and accuracy of production.

Our capacity is further boosted by ‘Untha’ single shaft shredders that can take everything from Polycarb CDs to HDPE 1100 litre wheelie bins and our ‘Rapid’ granulators that turn material into 8mm chips to be used for re-manufacture.

This year, we have invested over £250,000 into extending our capacity and building a bonded warehouse, which is dedicated to the secure destruction of sensitive information and valuable products.

We also purchased a fully automatic baling machine to bale LDPE film/cardboard and the installation of a new shredding and granulating line to granulate various polymer types to customer specification.

Plastic Waste Management System

Our ability to recycle 100 different grades of plastic means we can offer a plastic waste management system to clients in more than ten different industries.

We will develop a bespoke recycling solution that fulfills the client’s business needs and importantly Government legislation that can prove so costly if not fully met.

A fleet of four branded vehicles – ranging from a transit van to 38 tonne articulated lorry – completes more than 50 collection and deliveries every day, spanning the length and breadth of the UK.

We work with customers who need to recycle reject industrial parts, hardware products, wheelie bins, film, CDs and even billboard posters.

Throughout this process, a dedicated account manager will be responsible for designing schedules that work for both parties and ensuring the necessary documentation is completed on time and with minimum inconvenience.
