Most recycling centers do not accept old photos because they’re very hard to recycle due to the huge amount of ink on them. “The traditional print development process uses photo processing chemicals to develop film, negatives, and paper containing silver.” Common papers used are fibre-based or resin-coated, which are less common. Fibre-based papers have a larger chance of being recycled than resin-coated papers because the latter has a plastic layer on it. Therefore, it’s quite hard to recycle old photographs, but if you know the type you have, it might be easier to research this and find out if you can recycle them or not!
