Get rid off EtBr treated gels - is there a mean to reuse them ? (Nov/18/2004 )

Hi all,

Has somebody any idea about how to reuse or detoxify EtBr treated gel to reuse it again in preparative DNA handling or simply to throw it in the paper bin?!! is there any safe procedure to get ride off these gels-at home; lab- without appeal to a special chemist ? some time ago, i hearded about a carbon based procedure but i don't know exactly how to perform it?

Any advice would be nicely appreciated.
