We keep a log that says the alcohol was tested for %, date and tech.  The recycled alcohol goes into already labeled containers that notes that it is recycled and the %.  The recycled Formula 83 is tested for purity and entered into the log the same way the alcohol is.

Subject: [Histonet] labeling of recycled chemicals

Dear Histonetters,

If you use a recycler for xylene and/or alcohol, how are you labeling
the recycled containers?  Do you assign a "lot #" to each carboy?  

Do you keep a log or just label any container filled from a carboy with
the "lot #" and the %, in the case of alcohols?
