How are people disposing of old engine oil?

I am running out of 25 litre containers! There is probably 20 of them around the place, possibly 15 years worth! I have given up trying to take 5 litres at a time to the recycling centre. Surely there is an easier way of getting shot of it. It is not like it can't be recycled is it? I have access to some IBC containers. Is it worth filling one of them and getting someone to collect? Any recommendations?

TIA

Ask a livestock farmer, don't buy expensive new oil and filters to put in and you don't need to worry about disposing what you take out, double win. (y) (y) :ROFLMAO:
I used to run an old Sambron loader with a Deutz 3 cylinder engine that would "drink" a couple of litres of old oil each and every week and never needed an oil change :p Quite a lot of my old oil went that way!

We collect it in IBC and and several local shops with waste oil heaters pick it up, give us a few cents per gallon for it.
Also use a small amount for dust control on our gravel lot in high traffic areas around the shop, works great for that (y)
Err....

Just 1 litre of oil can contaminate 1 million litres of water. Oil pollution can have a devastating effect on the water environment, it spreads over the surface in a thin layer that stops oxygen getting to the plants and animals that live in the water.

Variety ‘watch list’ for wheat yellow rust released

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

AHDB has issued a yellow rust watch list to help flag winter wheat varieties most likely to perform out of line with the disease ratings published in the Recommended Lists. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The watch list, which orders varieties based on yellow rust levels from the three worst RL trials (for each variety), can help identify those most likely to benefit from closer monitoring, says the levy board. It follows the development of a new rating calculation approach that better reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of the UK’s rust populations, announced at the launch of the online edition of the RL 2021/22 in Dec.
