I'd been taking my used oil to either Advanced Auto or Autozone. Found out Advanced Auto, at least, also have a container for used anti freeze.

We never dealt with used oil in the lube oil industry. A used oil industry supposedly run it through atmospheric and vacuum distillation. Antifreeze would easily be collected in either the atmospheric one or in the overheads of the vacuum unit. Most of the used oil would be recovered in sidestreams off the vacuum distillation. Anti freeze would not end up in the recovered oil. So, no problem putting anti freeze in with used oil in same container.

Not sure about used brake fluid.

I have a Cleanburn CB2800 waste oil furnace in my 40x60 garage that’s saved me thousands of dollars.
Free heat.
My bil just gave me 55 gallons yesterday at todays price of $5.599 that’s $305.00 saved.
