The specimens are frozen, and then they are disposed of in the incinerator. Charlie was upset and asked to take care of Algernon's remains himself.

"Not Algernon," I said. "Look... if and... when... I mean I don't want him dumped in there. Give him to me. I'll take care of him myself." He didn't laugh. He just nodded. Nemur had told him that from now on I could have anything I wanted.
