Microfiche and Micromedia Disposal
Microfiche and micromedia are transparent plastic sheets containing photographic records. They were commonly used to archive large amounts of documents in a small space before computers. Many organizations are now choosing to upgrade from this format and replace them with digital storage.
Disposal methods for micromedia should be carefully considered depending on type of material and the confidentiality of the records. Microfiche comes in a variety of colors and can clue you in on the type of material you are dealing with. Microfiche with a white image on a blue background is vesicular film. Silver-colored microfiche is made of silver halide. Silver microfiche may be hazardous and should be handled only by professionals. Other film bases include cellulose nitrate, cellulose acetate, and polyester.
