We recently went through this disposal issue at our institution and we
had the waste from our Ventana sent off for analysis.  The report came
back that, at least for our area and state, that it was OK for us to
dispose of the waste down the drain.

Subject: [Histonet] DAB waste

Hi Everyone,

I rarely write in, but about this topic I feel strongly. Never should a
well known carcinogen such as DAB be put down the drain,no matter how
dilute (and yes, Ventana reps will tell you the very dilute DAB in the
waste bottle is ok to poor down the drain). In this country (the USA)
lack of resources and/or money is also a poor excuse (if you can afford
using the Ventana system you can afford to have waste hauled off--no
matter how many states it must travel).
I try to convince folks this way-if that drain pipe went from your
workplace, through the waste treatment plant, directly to your home
would you allow your children/grandchildren/any loved one to drink it?
Sorry for the rant but ignorance and excuses make me crazy!
