I take all my used oil in a 5 gal gas container (that was only used for old oil) to the local Havoline oil change place. They're always happy to help me with that. I think THEY appreciate that the consumer isn't just dumping oil anywhere.

That way by the time it finds its way to a drinking water supply bacteria will have had enough time to break it down en route. [ December 06, 2003, 10:12 PM: Message edited by: 1781cc ]
