Hire a cement mixer and get some lumps of metal or ball bearings. Put
the slides and bearings in the mixer, turn on. Voila powdered glass;
take to dump.

Hi All,

Can some of you give me ideas of how you handle old slide disposal?
Particularly those of you in smaller, private labs.  I have about 20
worth of slides that I need to dispose of.  If I have to send them with
biohazardous waste, I can, but it seems like an unnecessary expense.
Currently that is what the procedure says that we do, but is it really
necessary?  Maybe someone out there would like to build a glass house :
