Ditto in Massachusetts. I work at MGH and we are striclty regulated by the MWRA
(Mass Water Resources Association) which monitors closely anything that goes
down the drain. They are especially concerned with mercury and the ppm are
very minute. Anything going down the drain can affect Boston Harbor. We have an
outside company that collects our waste, including ethanol. We throw nothing
down the drain.

Not in Florida either. We use Aldex to neutralize the formalin & then dispose
of it on the biohazard trash. The mfr says once neutralized you can put it in
regular trash, but we don't.
