It's grass mowing and garden plowing time. When my husband is going to change the oil in the mowers or tractor, I save a plastic soda bottle and a gallon milk jug, that has a top that screws on, for him to use to put the oil into.
We take the oil to the solid waste convenience site when taking the recycling and household trash. The oil goes in the oil barrel for recycling.
There are many local auto shops and recycling centers that will accept your used motor oil and oil filters so they can be properly recycled - refined, reconditioned or reprocessed. It is completely free to you. Do not toss into the trash can or recycle can at your home.
Used motor oil is recyclable. If you change your own motor oil, pour it from pan into an empty windsheild wiper fluid bottle (with screw top) when you are done.
