    Really? Even though you can literately take it to most any parts store or oil change place and have it recycled for free? I'm no tree hugger, but that's just wrong.

    When I was a kid on the farm, we poured it along fence lines, we thought we were environmentally friendly back then. I remember some farmers changing oil in their tractors, just draining it straight onto the ground. We didn't have the concept back then.

    We did a lot of stuff we didn't know any better. I used to clean my cuts in the solvent tank to make sure they didn't get infected. Now we can't have solvent tanks because they were found to be a carcinogen.

    I remember the township spreading oil on the gravel roads in front of houses for dust control.

    For 50 years my dad would put the drain oil in a pump sprayer and spray it on the gravel driveway to "cut down the dust" and I grew up on a farm,lots more the 3-4 quarts at a time-Thought it was stupid even then but what does a 7 year old know!!!!

    Oil originates in the ground. We drill and pump it for use. Maybe putting it back in the ground is the ultimate recycling. :)
