I think anymore it's the law that a store that sells motor oil has to take used oil at no charge.
Maybe I'm mistaken, but I know every auto parts store here takes used oil. I pour all mine into empty metal 5 gallon xylene cans from our paint shop and just tip it upside down on the top of the waste oil tank at the parts store.
Around here like its been said before the local parts places takes it. We can also take it to the local dump where they have recycling tanks for various oils and if Im not mistaken for used antifreeze.
A few of the auto parts stores around here take it, but I think they only allow 1 gallon per visit. There's a few other places that burn it around here, but generally their tanks are at capacity (I think they need to burn more lol).
It's a bit frustrating since I usually have 4.5 gallons or so from my truck, and the race car uses 3-4 gallons too, that makes for a lot of trips when you need to get rid of it.
When I get around to building my own shop I'm hoping to put a waste oil burner in there. Between the oil from the truck, race car and all the air compressors I change oil on, I'd have free heat most of the winter.
Now getting rid of used refrigerant oil is a whole other ball game. Man I hate getting rid of that stuff around here. Company policy says we can't have more than 5 gallons in the shop at any one time. Change oil on a big ice arena rack and you'll end up with 30 pretty easy. Stupid policies.
