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

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?
