    I'm not possitive, but don't auto stores have to accept used auto fluids. Might be worth a call to one in your area and see if they will dispose of it.

    Take them to any lube shop. By law, if they change those fluids, they have to take them from people. I have changed my own fluids since I bought my truck and I always take my stuff to the nearest Jiffy Lube and they always take it, no questions asked.

    Just saying...

    MOTOR OIL
    Motor oil is considered a hazardous waste because it can seep into landfills, sewers, backyards, and storm drains. This gets into our groundwater and can damage water treatment systems as well as contaminate drinking water. Used motor oil should be taken to an automotive facility. Most service stations, repair facilities, and quick lubes will accept used motor oil without charge.

    Used motor oil can be reprocessed into fuel that can be used in furnaces for heat, or in power plants to generate electricity for homes, schools and businesses. It can also be used in industrial and utility boilers, blended for marine fuels, and other uses. Used motor oil can also be re-refined into lubricating oils that meet the same API specifications as virgin motor oil. Source

    How To Dispose Of Motor Oil: Simply drain your oil into a clean container (like a gallon milk jug or water container) with a tight-fitting cap. Don't mix the oil with any other liquids, and make sure the oil is free from dirt, leaves, and other debris. Then take it to an oil collection location.

    Same thing though. If they sell it/change it/use it, they have to dispose of it.
