Most (all) embalming fluids contain hazardous liquids. It depends on you state's regulations and the amount of dilution that occurs in the washing down process. Years ago UC Irvine had a fish toxicity test on their waste that showed it to pass...
You either assume it is hazardous, or prove its not

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Gross anatomy labs
In the development of our new College of Osteopathic Medicine a question came up about their Gross Anatomy lab. After they are finished with the dissections of the cadavers and are cleaning off the tables what are the regulations for those
fluids? Is everything collected as biohazardous/pathological waste?
