methylmercury disposal

Hello out there.  I am currently using low concentrations (ug/L) of
methylmercuric chloride for toxicology tests on fish.  I have produced
about 40L of liquid waste with a concentration of <100 ug/L methylmercuric
chloride.  I'm wondering if anyone has a procedure for precipitating
out CH3HgCl so that I can reduce my waste volume.  I have heard of some
procedures but no one I've talked with seems to know the exact method.
Thanks in advance,
Jennifer Samson
