Call a repair shop, they'll take it. My shop can dispose of everything. Right now, the recycle tanker doesn't charge to take antifreeze pays per gallon for waste oil and trans fluid.

The local penz oil change center does oil and antifreeze changes. They burn some oil in their oil fired furnace, and a recycler picks up the excess. The antifreze They just pour down a floor drain and it goes in the city sewer system. The owner told me this was ok with the city and is legal. So I guess just pour your antifreeze down a drain. We used to pour motor oil down fence lines as it prevents any vegetation growth. Not the green thing to do anymore.

The Haz Mat Administrative unit of your fire department would know, not your local fire station.

I walk in my local Advance Auto store.....with my used oil in a plastic bag....he asks " Know where the containers are?"....I nod yes, and I go do my thing. The only thing they will not dispose of is the empty containers, I recycle them with our regular pick up of recycle stuff.

It all goes into the old oil container
