Subject: Handling Biology Cell/DNA Waste

We are a small size liberal arts university with a natural science department that has begun some areas of research which is producing waste solutions which contain cell and DNA components. How is this type of waste being handled by others?  Would it be considered Biohazard or can it be disposed of down the sink as non-hazardous waste?
