[Histonet] Hollande's solution

We are thinking of changing from Bouin's solution to Hollande's solution
for our GI biopsies.  I have looked at the MSDS and do not see any real
issues.  My biggest question is disposal of this solution.  Can it
safely go down the drain?  Also, Freida Carson's book suggests washing
the specimens before processing them.  Does everyone do that?
Thanks for any and all help.
