SteriCycle takes ours...we have to use yellow barrels labeled "pathology waste" and try to seperate "identifiable" tissue from "unidentifiable" tissues, which for us would be limbs, products of conception (if there is a fetus that could be recognized), and some mastectomies...Once Stericycle takes it, they incenerate it so that nothing can be identified. I'm not sure what they do with the ashes after that.
