At the University of Alaska Anchorage, we use broken glass boxes from VWR or Fisher - cardboard with a plastic bag liner. Our unwritten policy is to reinforce the bottom, lower third and upper third of the box with duct tape. We add a label indicating the maximum fill line, at approximately 3/4 full, with contact numbers for Lab Support to replace the full box.
Our Lab Support and EHS personnel handle the full boxes which are taped closed with more duct tape for disposal.
We do not have any specifics regarding weight.
