I think they are all going to be regulated in some way – if not formaldehyde or formalin solution, then mercury salts for dry mounts or taxidermy specimens.

We are cleaning out and remodeling our biology lab and have LOTS of preserved specimens, some from as far back as the 1940’s. The biology folks want to discard these. My question…is there any way to dispose of them other than through a hazardous waste facility? I assume most are stored in formaldehyde solution.
Thanks in advance for your wisdom and replies.
