Russ is correct.  Massachusetts law does not permit us to treat  
hazardous chemicals to render them inactive and then dispose.  That  
being the case, as long as the butyl lithium is still in water-free  
hexane, most seem to feel that there should not be a problem  
transporting it to a hazardous storage area for pick-up.

But thanks, all.  This forum is great!
