Re: tissue block disposal

From:Vicki Gauch

 When we need to dispose of paraffin blocks, we double red bag them, place them in hard fiber boxes that are labeled for incineration and also have our generator label on them and they are picked up by our  infectious waste disposal department.  Our "red bag" waste is taken off-site for incineration.

Hope that helps,

Fellow Histonetters,
How are your facilities disposing of tissue paraffin blocks?
