O'Reilly's took my used oil but not the bottles; should I throw them in garbage? #5386519 03/26/20 07:54 PM

I went to O'Reilly's in the hope that they would take all my used oil, filters, and oil containers. They took the first two but said they can't take the bottles so they handed me back the empty bottles (with oil all over the outside of course).

Should I just throw them in the weekly garbage or what is the best thing to do to get rid of them?

The empty containers aren't recyclable in our community either.

Some people would just take the used oil and jugs to Walmart for a full refund. Then one of us would wind up with it.

At our waste disposal site they have a separate receptacle for them. In your case I would just throw them in the trash.

Here they're considered HazMat. At work we have a company pick them up for recycling once we accumulate a wheeled recycling container full.

I am assuming this was your first-ever DIY oil change.
How did it go?..... any obstacles or oil spills at least.....lol

Weird, at my local Auto Zone, I have to ask for my jugs back (I like the mobil jugs, they have a big opening that my funnel fits into).
They also will not let me take it back and dump it myself anymore. I guess someone screwed up their tank.
