    What do you do with your used oil from your lawn equipment and trucks etc.??
    Take It to the dump
    store in a container
    Or do you recycle??

    Store it in a container, then place it out with the recycle every other Friday.

    I have a 5 gallon container. Once it's filled, I take it to the recycle center and dump it out.

    We don't have a recycle program for oil here...that picks It up with the garbage...But I have heard of a company that will take your old oil and make new oil from It???:dizzy: I think that would be real slick If they can do It.

    I find the 5 gal containers can get real messy

    Your doing It almost like the way I do...I Use my empty Race fuel 55 gal drums...But I bring them to my friends service station, and he has the pumper suck out the oil.

    I use it to heat my shop. I got one of those oil furnaces from northern tool. Works great and it does not cost me anything for fuel

    I heard that they were a fire hazard. But maybe they were the home made type.
