Just out of interest, what to you guys who self-service do with the oil? I did a self-service at my ex-gf's dad's place, but I left before he disposed of the oil (and I don't know how he did it, but I'm assuming he was naughty & tipped it down the drain).
Is there a set procedure for disposing of the oil (ie storing in containers and taking to an "oil recycling/disposing" place)? I'm curious...

Im using 20liter thinners drums to store waste oil that i will take down to the local collection facility Used oil recycling facilitys
i keep a spare set in the glove box, along with spare fuses and a small screwdriver. i know i'll be able to get home.
i don't know of too many people who keep a spare engine management system in their glove box
after my oil change i pour it into a 20l container then deliver to the tip. used filters go in a plastic bag then into the wheelie bin
