I have the Dako unit.  It separates the hazardous/non-hazardous waste.  The DAB goes into a 20L carboy that is then hauled off-site for disposal.

with the risk of sounding stupid (which happens to me often) how are people disposing their DAB contaminated Ventana waste? I mean, there is so little actual DAB present. 
    I refuse to answer any questions that might incriminate me. I know what you are thinking.
    I have a new safety office who just happens to be certified in hazmat (yes, for those who know me, it's Hector). Hector keeps bugging me about it.
    For those who don't know us, Hector and I are joined at the hip. Last year in Ft. Lauderdale, everyone knew something was wrong because they saw Hector without me. No, we are not homosexuals, not that it matters. Hector was my histology instructor and we are really, really close friends.
    Oh d _ _ m, I'm sure I just offended somebody. I'm leaving now before I say something else wrong. It must be Friday. Why do I do this to myself? 
    Have a safe weekend y'all.
