In Texas most places recycle it for you for free. In my garage I have a small galvanized round tub that I put oil dry in the bottom of. Then I put a 5-gallon Ozarka jug into the tub. (this is just in case the jug cracks or breaks, however I have used the same jug for 8 years.) What I do is pour all my used oil into the jug. When it fills up after 4-5 oil changes I cap it, put it in the truck and drive over to Wal-Mart.
