First off glad to see your not stalking er'ah I meen lurking anymore so . It is good to have new peeps postin and as far as your question I just pour it into an old container and take it to the city waist drum for disposal.
I do the same with the auto oil.
Anyhow, Stick around. Post up more questions.
I fill up old 5 quart oil jugs, winsheild washer fluid bottles, one gallon milk jugs. I keep them until I get about 10 jugs sitting around or more...then I just take the jugs to wal-mart and put it next to their big oil recycle bin.
I just put it into a container and take it to work, where we have a recycle drum for "Waste Oil" and then a truck come's by every so often and sucks it out. I have used my used oil as a weather proofing for wood fencing, and wood sided building's, it starts out as a really nice dark brown, and then lighten's nicely as it weathers ! It also makes a nice weed killer !

doesnt have any runoff when it breaks down? Tell me more. im curious.
I just take mine to any auto parts store and utilize thier oil dump.
We're on the same road as a public school, and The State of Delaware conveniently put a recycling station next to our shop about 2 years ago (not just oil - cardboard, glass, etc). It rocks
Prior to that, we had to lug 5 gal buckets to the NAPA in town.
A lot of auto / other maintenance shops are using heaters that run off used oil now ... very cheap way to heat your garages. I wish we had a couple - the big industrial propane heaters cost a fortune to run during the winter (14 foot celings don't help).
