RE: [Histonet] paraffin blocks

Did I miss all the replies on this subject?  I was looking forward to
reading all the reponses; my lab is currently in a dilemma about how to
handle disposal of these items.  Afraid to share/admit?

We have our own incinerator.  That's where all this stuff goes.

I  like to know how do other Histology Lab. get rid of paraffin blocks
that are 20+years.   Do you have a medical waste company destroy them or
do you do it your self?
Thank you for answer me as quickly as possible.
