have used Richard Allan Clearite 3 and Anatech Propar, both are recyclable
and cannot be drain dumped.  

They are used for processing and staining/coverslipping with excellent 
results, and decalcified bone samples are not as hard during sectioning
as with xylene processing.  Have also used them with polymethylmethacrylate
processing procedures successfully.
The terpene/limonene based solvents are sensitizing, so watch
out if you  or your coworkers suddenly cannot be around them, these make me
instantly pea green nauseous ill, even when contained in household
