We simply reuse the empty bottles the original chemicals came in, so it usually the 4L narrow mouth bottles.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Lab Waste accumulation bottle preference
I‰??m getting ready to order some waste accumulation bottles for our laboratories and wonder if there is a practical reason to have narrow mouth bottles rather than wide mouth bottles. It seems like the wide mouth bottles would eliminate the need for a funnel during the filling process and lead to less exterior contamination of the waste bottle. However, standard practice appears to be narrow mouth bottles and I wonder if this is due to a specific practical reason or inertia?
Thanks for any thoughts on this.
