What do you do with your waste oil?

I know a lot of folks on here do there own maintenance, and that got me thinking, what do you do with your waste oil? I mean engine, trans, axles, t-cases, etc... Return it to the store? Burn it? Recycle it?


My Fleet;

2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI 2.0L 6A
2010 Chevrolet Malibu LT 2.4L 6A
2003 Chevrolet Silverado LS 6.6L 5A
1997 GMC Suburban SLT 5.7L 4A

recycle it at Autozone or TSC.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Drain oil is the best shop heat in the world. You can get an approved EPA heater, needs an air compressor to go with it and the savings are great.
