Recycling

Willing & Able recycle a large range of items to reduce landfill.
Computer towers, x-rays, mobile phones, digital cameras, clothing items can be left at the store or collected upon request by phoning 02 6581 0939.

X-ray Recycling

This is our newest venture. X rays have silver in them in the form of 'halides' we have collected hundreds of X rays from the community and also medical centres . These are sold by the kilo, granulated up and put through a process to extract pure silver. Another potential resource instead of waste.

Willing & Able Foundation recycles old X-Rays (both old wet film & new digital film). All private documentation is carefully shredded to protect privacy. X-Rays are passed to our contractor & finely granulated for additional security & privacy. Willing & Able Foundation is supported by many medical services in our local area with donations of old X-Rays. No worries now with what to do with your old X-Rays - help protect our environment & drop yours off at our main office at 39 Jindalee Road.
