    So, how do you dispose of your used hydraulic oil after a service?

    Title says it all. Who takes it? Does it go to places that take motor oil?

    I've got a friend with a automotive shop with a waste oil heater. He gives me a 35 gal drum and I put everything oil-based except gasoline, brake fluid, antifreeze in it,
    then drop it by his place sometime in January, and get it back shortly thereafter empty. Oil, Hydraulic fluid, diesel (from filter replacements), transmission fluid, etc. It all burns.

    Around here (PA) most of the auto parts stores that accept waste oil don't differentiate between the two. My container sometimes has a few gallons that is a mixture of oil types. One time the parts guy wondered by as I was dumping what appeared to be mostly reddish fluid. He asked "Transmission fluid?" I said "Yep.." and kept dumping. :-)

    Used coolant is the hard stuff to get rid of.

    When I bought the material to do my service at my dealer, I asked if they could/would dispose of the used oil. He said they don't normally do that but would for me that time. I'm due for another change about the end of the year and gonna see if he'll do it again. If not, I'll mix it with my used motor oil and take it back to Autozone. .

    All of my waste oil goes to the local county waste mgt center. They accept 5 gallons per day, free of charge.

    I believe in MN at least, anyone selling oil must accept used oil for recycling.

    I've got a 5 gallon kerosene (blue) can that I take to Autozone when fullish. I just wave as I walk to the back and dump whatever mix of oil I've got in there in the tank. I've never had anybody even check on me.

    I use all of my waste oil to start brush piles on fire. I do use a small amount of hydraulic oil to lubricate things like my hay conveyer.

    I might, maybe, sometimes, once upon a time, do the same.
