I found this newsgroup but it seems to be only spam but I'll ask anyway.
My trash company on Monday wrote "motor oil only" on my half-dozen milk

Where do you dump used transmission fluid in the USA?
I buy the atf at O'Reillys.
I called them up.
They said they take up to five gallons if they sold it.
No cross contamination is allowed they say.
So it can't be atf in a motor oil container they say.
I have to sign something before they'll take it they say.
I almost couldn't find this thread in all the spam.

There were always a few OT discussions among regular posters, but he's
still a pig.
Many chain auto parts stores accept it for recycling . Or you could
use it in a waste oil burner to melt aluminum and brass to cast into
useful and decorative items . I wouldn't recommend it for a forge though
, don't know what is in there that might contaminate your metal .
The local garbage company specifies clear containers for pickup. I took
mine (oil) to the HazMat Days last month and they didn't bitch about a
gallon Rotella jug. They did hand a guy's brake fluid back to him though.
The oil drop off was separate from the rest of the operation.
Unfortunately I got in the wrong line that I couldn't get out of and
