Good afternoon HTS,
I've been studying a lot of circuitry lately and am planing to etch a few of my own PCBs soon and I have a simple question; I'm planning to use the hydrogen peroxide and hydrochloric acid method to etch the copper boards which is simple and cheap, but unfortunately it produces copper chloride in the process which is toxic and illegal to simply flush down the sink. I have no plans of reusing it, so does anyone know how to properly dispose of it in the US? I've heard of precipitating it out with baking soda and of turning it into aluminum chloride and then flushing it down the sink, but does anyone know if these methods actually work and are legal? Also, any other tips would also be nice, thanks!
