block disposal

From:"Coulter, Diane"

How does everyone dispose of their parrafin blocks in plastic cassettes?  We
have 3 choices here: white bag to landfill, red bag to incinerator (which
will soon end because of the plastic) or red bag and autoclave.  Seems to me
that this material is no longer infectious  but should it go to a landfill? 
Thanks in advance for any help,
