call Carolina Biological. I was told by Carolina several years ago that Carosafe could be diluted and poured down the drain. Never done so - but I would check. Of course any "pour down" the drain is also dependent on location of school. "Gallons" is an additional issue

Best of the New Year to everyone. 
I was bombarded with a question yesterday about the right way to dispose of gallons of Carosafe liquid.  It is a liquid that is used to preserve dead pigs and  our biology department has gallons of it.  This mixture consist  of  water (89%), propylene glycol (10.01%), 2-amino-2-ethyl-1,3- propanediol (0.66%) and 2-Phenoxyethanol (0.33%),  according to the SDS.
Has anyone work with this liquid before and  what is the best and legal way to dispose of it within NY state?
Thank you,
Richard Denton, CHO
