RE: Liquid Scintillation
Russ and All,
The Cl-36 lsc standard is probably less than the license exempt quantity for
Cl-36. As a licensee you can transfer it to a person who does not have a
license, say yourself or your department head. Then, since they do not have
a licensee they are exempt from 10 CFR 20, including the disposal
regulations. (Title10 CFR Part 20 applies only to licensees.) Therefore,
they may dispose of the exempt quantity in any way they wish: e.g., trash
can, sewer, municipal waste, biomedical waste, hazardous chemical waste
broker, etc. Since it is toluene, I recommend the latter.
If my logic is incorrect wrt NRC and Agreement State regulations, please

PS- Be careful in ordering some of these. We have a 20 ml Cl-36 standard
in toluene that's been here for years. We tried to dispose of it, but
we're stuck with it. No brokers will even bid on it.
