We have worked with Carosafe. We received a statement from the manufacturer (Carolina) about their recommendations for disposal, environmental impact, etc., along with an MSDS. We then sent this information to the Industrial Hygienist at the City for evaluation and written approval on proper disposal. We were allowed to sewer it. However, NY state may be different than MN. This is the process we use for every new preservative.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Proper Disposal of Carosafe solvent.
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?
Richard Denton, CHO
