Subject: Re: alcohols
I am with a university and we have our own environmental health and
dept. that comes around to pick up hasmats. I dispose of all ETOH,
isoprop, methanol, acetone, etc. together in one container (labeled
the contents and approximate % of each alcohol in the total volume).
understand this waste is then taken elsewhere to be burned as fuel.
I keep xylenes and histoclear in one container, with the alcohols
acetone separate. If I dump any alcohol down the drain, it is in
small quantities that can be diluted quickly with running tap water.
I am thinking seriously about getting one of those recyling systems.
makes them? I've seen them advertised, but now that I want one, I
seem to find the ads (figures).
