Broken slides and used slides must be disposed of in a sharps container. Containers for sharps disposal must be puncture-proof, have a fitted lid, and must not be filled to capacity. When they are three quarters full, they should be placed in containers for infectious waste and incinerated. Containers for sharps disposal must not be discarded in a landfill unless they have been incinerated or autoclaved. Used slides must not be reused.
