Our lab is once again evaluating disposal of slides/blocks from >10 years ago. Maintaining or donating the material do not appear to be feasible options.

Aside from PHI issues, how are labs disposing of this type of material. Do you place the slides in sharps containers?  Do you red bag the blocks?
