Space is valuable – in small medical practices as well as in a hospital’s archives. It makes sense, therefore, to clear out patient information once the legal retention period has expired. Having said that, though, recycling X-rays always needs quite a bit of organisation and the right logistics systems. REMONDIS Medison’s goal is to reduce the amount of work you have to do to a minimum and to make the process as profitable as possible for you. By the way, the same is true if you have a large number of X-rays that need recycling – for example if archives need to be cleared out. We are able to provide you with the containers you need and, if you wish, the staff as well.

For the most part, files and X-rays can be destroyed and disposed of after ten years.
If you wish, we can also digitise and archive X-rays as well as recycle them
X-rays must be stored according to the retention period stipulated in Section 28 of the ‘RöV’ [German X-ray Ordinance]. You can make the most of this material as soon as this period has come to an end. Not only have you got more space, you also earn money from having your X-rays recycled. And the whole process is so simple. We supply you with the right bins and transport containers to suit the volumes you have – if you wish, bins and containers that can also be locked. You then put all the X-rays that can be recycled into these. Should the films first need to be removed from envelopes, then we can also do that for you as well. There is no need for you to pre-sort them. Of course, our X-ray recycling service also includes destroying and disposing of all confidential patient information in accordance with all current legislative requirements. The X-rays are recycled in our state-of-the-art plants using technology that is particularly efficient and environmentally friendly.
