Fluid Disposal


Recommended Posts

Whats the best way to get rid of old coolant?

My local tip only takes oil, so thats not an option. I have heard people claim that their local water company has told them to flush it down the toilet as long as its not a regular thing, as the treatment plants will neutralise small amounts without a problem. Obviously, this sounds a bit dodgy to me though, so can anyone confirm/deny this?

Also, wth do you do with brake fluid? Mix it with the oil and hope the tip doesn't realise?

Take it to a local garage and give them a few quid as coolant disposal costs garages. Your right dont tip it down the sink or drain, and dont leave in an exposed container in the garden while you are working out what to do with it i lost a cat through all biet malicious but still antifreeze poisoning just before xmas
