[Histonet] disposal of tissue

From:Diana McCaig

How do labs dispose of pathological waste when incineration is not available
on site.  Do you have to empty each individual 90 ml container or will
companies take them away with the fluid still in them?  I realize most
larger containers are drained and the containers recycled but was curious to
see what is done with the smaller containers.  How long are the containers
retained and is this process done by lab staff in the histology department.
