We had the same problem here until I printed a copy of the insert that accompanied my solution stating how it was less hazardous than a variety of common items.  After that they began handling it as any other waste product.

I need some help with a safety issue concerning 1% aqueous uranyl nitrate used in a Steiner stain.  Does any one have any documentation from any regulatory agency on it's safety and use in the lab?
Our safety people want to post radiation signs all over the place and send everyone to radiation safety training.
Thanks in advance.
