Question: Disposal of staining solutions, especially H & E. Does one:-

1) Discard down the drain, with lots of water?.
2) Discard down the drain into a sand trap. (What do you do with the sand?)
3) Collect into drums and have it carted away by a commercial disposal
4) Recycle?
5) None of the above.

Please post your replies on the general Net as there will be many sites in
South Africa that will be interested in your replies.
