DIYers-What do you do with the waste fluids?

What do you do with old brake fluid, antifreeze and ATF? Motor oil is not a problem to give to an oil change shop, but what do you do with the rest?

In NY many garages will take back any fluid. Oils in general all get mixed together and they'll burn it for their heating.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Ditto in Australia we take it to the local council's recycling centre.

Aussies and Brits showing the way !! I remember when they used to come round and pay for our used oil , good beer money for the mechanics and staff . Nowadays they charge for uplifting it .

Any Wal-Mart or Autozone. It also makes good nourishment for red ant hills!
