Why don't you try 10% solution of NaHSO3 and 10% solution H2SO4? Too much sludge? You can use it in constructions or dissolve it and recover chromium. I think that other technologies are too expensive. Am I wrong? If you have new informations about this subject, please let me know. What about the chromic bacteria - biological treatments?

Reduce it first to trivalent chromium otherwise it will react with almost any organic medium. This can be done with sodium metabisulphite. The trivalent chromium can then be precipitated out as a sludge and caked up.
