Now I'm curious.  We all struggle with what is okay to go down the drain vs. what we're willing to put down the drain (I don't like dumping xylene substitues even when my water district says I can-- I like fish that swim right-side up! )
Can someone comment on the recycling programs out there for formalin and the costs vs. commercial waste haulers?  Is the end product worth the effort?
