All my local auto parts stores take oil. Its usually hidden in the back behind authorized personnel doors only signs. Go figure. I would call and ask before making any large trips. They take our oil filters also. This may vary by state as to which laws they follow. So again, call and ask.Great Post! I am going to do my first oil change and maintence on my 04 this weekend. I had a couple questions
Where are you guys taking the oil to get rid of it?
