Welcome to Tetra

Tetra Recycling, Inc is an environmentally friendly company specializing in the recovery of silver from x-ray, lithographic and industrial films, sludge and photographic papers.  Combining over 50 years of experience in the industry, Tetra has implemented new technology combined with a time proven process to protect our environment with little to no wastewater discharge.  In addition, this technology allows Tetra to reduce overhead costs in production and pass on the savings to our customers.

Located in Knoxville, Tennessee, Tetra is centrally located within 750 miles of 75% of the US population.  Tetra serves post-industrial & consumer, manufacturing, government and photography markets in the US while also serving clients overseas.  It is important to note that Tetra is not a film broker and allows all of our customers the opportunity to witness any or all of the process.

Tetra emphasizes ENVIRONMENT in every step of the recycling process and throughout the company.  From the purchase of electric rechargeable fork lifts to the treatment and re-use of all of the water from the wash process to recycling all the byproducts from plastic, paper, cardboard and pallets, Tetra strongly feels that promoting environmentally friendly practices and protecting our planet’s resources are essential business practices

Tetra takes patient confidentiality and privacy very serious and meets or exceeds all the new HIPAA requirements. Tetra assures that all materials received are destroyed to non-legible sizes before processing and will provide clients with documentation to that effect.  Helping you offset some of your costs is also a vital concern, and Tetra is here to assist you in that endeavor.

Tetra would like the opportunity to earn your business.  Call us today for information and a free quotation.
