Used Oil Disposal

Since this seems to be the day for oil topics, I have a question for the group: Where / how do you responsibly and legally dispose of oil around Houston? I'm in the Tomball area.

In NJ, every place that sold motor oil was required to accept used oil for recycling, so you could essentially drop it off at any gas station, auto store, Wally World, etc. This helped to minimize the illegal dumping and burying of used oil greatly.

Yup. But, the guys there usually let you dump whatever you have...even if it's more than 5 gallons.

Walmart takes it. I went over there with almost 30 quarts and they took it fine, all they wanted to know was if I owned an auto shop or something. I said no 4 oil changes for a bimmer and they were happy.

Looks like you got your answer from all the replies above! The only big difference between here and Jersey is that Gas Stations here rarely have a "Service" garage!!

I just pour mine down the storm drain.

j/k

I use an old water cooler bottle to store my oil (5 gallons worth). When that thing gets full I roll over to AutoZone and dump it.

I know our Autozone has told me before they didn't, not sure about O'reillys though. Jiffy Lube has been nice enought to let me pour it in their container before.


OT story: When we first moved into our rent house we were told we can't do work on our vehicles in the driveway, even oil changes. My one roommate got all huffy and swore that when it was time he would do his oil change wherever he wanted, which he did. The next week when all the grass died alongside the house I went out and noticed he changed his oil, then dumped it all in our grass. Right then I understood the [no-longer] bullshit rule of not being allowed to work on your vehicles. Needless to say, the other 3 of us kicked him out eventually because he just didn't reason like an average person.
