In response to growing customer concern and increased inquiries regarding proper environmental disposal of plastic packaging components, Imaging Office Systems (IOS) and Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) are expanding the scope of IOS’s microfilm preservation program to collecting recyclable microfilm and microfilm storage and packaging materials from qualified customers. Called The Return Program, it provides a way to prevent these items from ending up in the landfill.

This service is an extension of IOS’s certification as an Authorized Kodak Preservation Facility. This certification acknowledges IOS’s training and investment in facilities to test silver and acetate microfilm for Vinegar Syndrome and Redox and to take the necessary steps to ensure that our customers microfilm will provide the historical preservation for which it was intended.

The program involves the collection of plastic cores, reels, black or silver film bags, flip top boxes, silver and acetate microfilm and microfiche and other items used in the packaging of microfilm products. This service is available at NO CHARGE to any IOS customer plus any company or governmental agency headquartered in Whitley County, Ind., where IOS’ corporate headquarters is located.

To become part of this program, a company or agency must:
1.    Notify IOS of its intention to recycle by calling the nearest IOS office.
2.    Confirm with IOS that it qualifies for the Kodak sponsored program.
3.    Confirm an appointment time to drop off approved items to be recycled.
4.    Transport all recyclable items to the nearest IOS facility.
