    Here, you can take that stuff to the recycling center. No charges.

    Seriously though. Most full service gas stations have a dump point behind their place. They will usually let you use it for a nominal fee.

    We have HUGE brush piles we burn (2 of them) and we just dump old oil and gas on them to get em started. Sure they smoke a neighborhood all up, but heck, no one cared on Independence day anyhow :D

    I dumped about five gallons of water out of some old batteries down the drain at a car wash one time. I dont know what else was in there but it started smoking like crazy.

    Good thing it was about 2:00 am in the morning.
