Re: [Histonet] Paraffin and Slide disposal.

From:Rene J Buesa

The blocks can be incinerated. For the slides you could try to contact a recycling companey that probably will accept them as "glass to recycle" (and will be cheaper than a "specialized" company).

  I have been handed a pretty big mess. We have a lot of old blocks and
slides at a archiving company which needs to be disposed of because some
date back to 1960. Does anyone know of a company that will come in and
dispose of blocks and slides? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
