Hello All, I have a 1950's Westclox Mechanical Travalarm Clock with Bakelite Roll Top. It no longer works, and we were looking for a way to dispose of it responsibly. After some searching, I came across the website below. I am in Canada, so it would only apply in this country. I also have several early 20thC watches with Radio dials. These are stored over 20 feet away, which is thought to be safe. I don't want to have these destroyed, of course. I do not wear them though. Nuclear Substances and Radiation Devices Regulations One excerpt regarding watches: Devices Containing Radium Luminous Compounds 8 A person may, without a licence to carry on that activity, possess, transfer or use a device that contains a nuclear substance, if (a) the only nuclear substance contained in the device is a radium luminous compound; (b) the person does not possess more than 10 such devices; and (c) the device is not disassembled or tampered with. There is much more information on this website. I have been in contact with HARP, through the website, and am in the process of having the clock tested, removed, and disposed of correctly. This is a free service. A call around the city revealed that none of the watch repair places knew anything about how to dispose of Radium dials on watches. Some were not even aware of what it was. There are no longer any independent watch repair shops here, so there is nobody who knows of this. I contacted Al Archer, who sent me the link to the Canadian website that deals with this material. Thank you again Al.
