You can take it to the local tip free of charge where it can be disposed in there oil dumping area.

I believe any Ford dealer will also accept it for recycling.

I just poor it in this deep crevis, in the reserve next door, then cover with lawn clipping. Or alternatively dig a hole in the yard.

Yes, use it as weed killer... run it along the fence, and you won't have to whipper snip it for a couple of months!

They should sell sump oil in the gardening section of bunnings i reackon ;-)

Re: oil, disposing of

Mix it with creosote and paint the fence, or dig a "moat" round ya fence posts and pour the oil/creosote mixture in, post will not rot for 20 years.

1 part creosote, 20 parts oil.

By the way, make sure it cannot get into any waterways, or you may have a mini Valdez on ya hands :s6:

biggrin

Put in under pressure, i.e. sit it in a bag with a few bricks on it. Then lounge around and wait for it to turn to diamond. Shouldn't take too long, and you'll be rich* when it finally finsihes

Nah just kidding, but dispose of it good and proper (like we all do... )


*Note: rich may not be acquired from diamonds, rather may come from secret to staying alive so long, the exlixer of life.

Re: oil, disposing of

My used oil is use to service our commo, which uses the oil like a 2 stroke.... so we dont need to dispose of any oil :)
