[slightly off] recycling brake fluid

No, I'm not planning to re-use it myself!

Thing is, I've had a few sets of brakes to bleed recently, resulting in
about 2-3 pints of bled-off fluid.

Last time I went to the dump I forgot to take it with me, but asked the
chap down there. "Oh, just pour it in with the oil, over there." was the
response. It reminded me of the time they tried to tell me that Nife
cells were the same as lead acid. No protestations would do it, and
eventually I left them in the battery 'cage' with a note attached to
them.

So what challenge is a brake fluid - oil mix going to present to the
recyclers? What do they do with spent engine oil, burn it, crack it, or
dump it?

Regards,

Simonm.

Use it as fetish lube for NIMBY ramblers.
