Re: [Histonet] Disposal of formalin containers

From:"Joe Nocito"

at my former lab, we put the empty containers in a biohazard box to be 
picked up and burned. My current lab just throws them in the regular trash. 
I'm sure that helps a lot, doesn't it. the best answer would be get with 
your local landfill and see what they say.

Hello to all in histoland.  Our safety officer inquired If  we had a
procedure for the disposal of our formalin bottles.  The only procedure
that I had was for the waste formalin.  We just throw the bottles in the
trash for disposal.  Does any one do anything special for this type of
disposal.  Your help in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
