Labconscious scientists focus on sustainable lab work as a means to conserving resources and protecting nature, but the term sustainability can also be defined as" the capacity to endure". Biotechnology is considered by the U.N. to be a frontier technology, alongside robotics, and artificial intelligence. Awareness of micropipette tip box recycling has been spreading among U.S. labs and tip system manufacturers. Did you know that after taking into account your local conditions, it is also possible to recycle pipette tips? Non hazardous micropipette tips can be collected for recycling. Collect in a puncture proof container. BL1 and BL2 tips must be decontaminated with bleach or alcohol before being deposited into a recycling bin. Pharmaceutical contamination would also prevent recycling of tips.

Tip Boxes. Refill old pipette tip boxes to autoclave new pipette tips. This not only makes loading the autoclave easy but you can use the tips directly from the box after autoclaving. Otherwise, you must place the tips in a glass beaker and cover them with aluminum foil.
There are several options for disposing of these containers, including reusing them for another lab. You can also try recycling these pipette tips if you have a large collection, such as in the case of a biorepository. If you choose to reuse them, however, you must remember that they are very sharp and should not be reused after use. This can result in harmful consequences if they are not properly disposed of.
The pipettes should be placed in the receptacle so that the contaminated tips are submerged in the disinfectant. At the conclusion of procedures, the pipettes can be drained and transferred from the receptacle to a biohazard bag for treatment by autoclave, or disposal through the medical waste hauler.
