DON'T flush it!! It is bad for pipes, and bad for septic tanks.

I save mine for when I have a brush pile to burn--it is in a bourbon bottle under the sink. If I didn't have a brush pile, I would put it into the garbage--I don't know of anywhere to recycle it.

I think I would feel *safer* keeping it in a used vodka bottle, or gin maybe.
Just sayin'

For small amounts, I wait until it's cool and pour it into the trash (lined with a plastic trash bag).

I would not do it unless I asked first and had permission.

I would also want permission, some places get paid for the used oil.

I collect used oil and grease in an empty jar (pickle, spaghetti sauce, etc.) under the sink until it's full, then put it in the garbage.

I might try the tip for cleaning it to make soap...don't tell the girls. I'm sure they'd vote for mixing it with stale bread and rice...

Pacanis, you would have to be real drunk to consider drinking that 'bourbon'. The good stuff is in the bar cabinet by the fridge.
