We have an outside vendor, Stericycle, separate the formalin and the
tissue, and they take both for disposal.  I am in the Los Angeles area.

1.  How do you dispose of formalin fixed tissue specimens?  
2.  If you use a vendor, do you pour off the formalin first and have two
separate waste companies remove the fluid and tissue?  
3.  If you use one vendor for both, please provide vendor name.
