    Yeah, I've been thinking of getting rid of those hazardous materials for sometime now. I have a case each of Toyota OEM and Honda OEM transmission fluids, a bunch of old motor oils that I can no longer use on the hybrid, a few bottles of coolant, cans of paint thinner, many cans of oil based paints and stains, and other various chemicals I no longer use or no longer usable. Most of them are old and in open container that no one wants, but I can't just throw away in trash. I seem to always miss annual municipal hazardous waste drop off opportunity. But some of them are still in unopened bottles that someone can use. I would be glad to just give them away.

    The motor oils and transmission fluids can go in oil recycling. Any store that sells oil is supposed to accept used oil. Auto parts stores seem to just have a tank in that back that they let you dump it in. Recycling new oil is a bit of a waste, but that's what the hazardous waste collection will do with it anyway.

    My town has a hazardous waste recycling center that's open 4 days a week. They take almost anything. The best part is they have shelves full of free stuff like paint and cleaning supplies that you can take. I don't know what they do with everything they can't give away (besides oil which they send for recycling).
