[Histonet] Disposal of waste 10% NBF In Texas

From:"Burrill, Jason"

I am preparing my safety workshop I am giving in Dallas for the Texas
Society for Histotechnology In April and I was trying to determine how
Texas classifies waste 10% neutral buffered formalin, this is a question
that is commonly asked in my workshop.  I like to familiarize myself
with the state regulations if I am providing the training in a
particular state so I e-mailed the Texas Commission of Environmental
Quality and am awaiting a clarified response to their first answer.  


Would anyone mind sharing your lab's policy for handling of waste 10%
NBF?   If you prefer to respond to me directly I will keep all responses
confidential.  In my lab we collect it as Non-hazardous waste and it is
sent to a water treatment facility for processing.

Thanks in advance,
