Directions for Treatment of 10% NBF (4% formaldehyde) and 4% glutaraldehyde waste:

  1. Collect waste in a designated collection container.
  2. Use a funnel with a “screen insert” while collecting waste to remove tissue debris from waste.
  3. Add the entire contents of one Formaway bottle to each gallon of aldehyde waste.
  4. Secure the lid on the collection container and agitate the container to thoroughly mix solutions, make sure the agitation ultimately results in the complete dissolution of Formaway Formalin Neutralizer Powder.
  5. Allow the mixed solution to stand for 20-25 minutes for the reaction to be complete.
  6. If required, test the treated solution for any aldehyde residual prior to disposal (follow instructions for Formaway Formaldehyde Residual Screening Test Kit).
  7. Pour treated waste into the sanitary sewer and rinse the container with cold tap water, preparing it for re-use.
