Biohazard Waste Disposal

From:Lisa Jackson

Is there a histology lab in histoland that has a policy for handling and
disposal of used Xylene, Clear Rite, Alcohol, Flex and formalin from the
stainer and the tissue processor? 
We are currently using a waste service to empty our 30 gal drums
[stored in a flam cabinet] once per month.  I thought of recycling, but
we don't have the space, personel or the money to purchase the
Please Help!
