We use Amresco Destaining Bags, E732-25; Google those words for more 
information.  They look exactly like tea bags, but without the string.  
Very convenient.

Hi all,

We are looking at our procedures for disposal of ethidium bromide in all
forms, and are wondering what other facilities are doing.  If anyone has
written procedures that they are willing to share, I would greatly
appreciate it.
