FWIW, I am a physicist, was a Docent at Lund University and for many years was the Safety Officer for my Department.
I will leave the waste CLEARLY LABELED, at my local miljöstation, where I leave spent fixer etc. To be honest, I will not contact the environmental authorities in this matter as I'm already doing this illegally. I don't have a degree in chemistry, I don't have a lab that follows the very strict regulations of swedish environmental law. Getting a permit for this would most probably be impossible. If I knew someone at Chalmers college I would contact them, but I don't. Or maybe I do... will check out.
