Default Question for those that change your own oil

After two season of changing the oil every 20 hours I have quite the collection of milk jugs filled with old oil.

What do you do with your old oil?

Most quick oil change places will take it for nothing. The Valvoline place around the corner from me will take 5 gallons at a time per day. At the moment, I probably have about 20 gallons of the stuff!! Time to make a few trips I guess. I get 5 gallon buckets from work for free. We get grease in them, complete with a plastic liner so the bucket is clean when we are done with it, works out great. Anyone want a bucket??

Thumbs up RECYCLE IT

Around here most all the stores will accept the oil and filters for free. I have never been asked for a receipt that I purchased it from that store either. I go to Pep Boys, Wal-mart, Auto zone or O'Reilley's! I would think you have one of thoses in your area!

Most land fills have a place for it, most of the time next to the battery and tire places.

I keep a couple of plastic 5 gallon gasoline cans marked "Waste Oil" and whenever one is filled I recycle the oil at any of the places listed above. A gas can is much tougher that a gallon jug and I would think less prone to leaking.

I fill 5 gal buckets that have lids. Most town recycling centers have a waste oil tank you can dump into for free.

By law anyplace that sells oil has to take used oil.

My local communities have recycling places that allow self disposal. I have been doing that for many many years.
