The guy doesn't make sense. If you go to any garage (from pop shop to BMW dealer), they put all kinds of auto fluid into a big oil collecting pan, there is no ATF pan, coolant pan, just one OIL pan.

Also brake fluid should evaporate within a minute.

Thanks OP. Was looking to upgrade my current oil drain pan from CT I've had for over 10 years.
It probably holds 5-6L because it's quite full when I change oil. and can be tricky pouring it into the oil jug for recycling.

2 oil places Mr Lube and Jiffy Lube told me the same thing and make you sign a form saying it is pure oil. Not sure if it’s a city thing (Victoria)

I bought this earlier in the summer when it was on sale for the same price. I used it today for the first time to change my motorcycle oil and the spout to pour the oil back into the jug was so easy. So much easier then using a funnel and spilling it. I highly recommend this.

Yeah seems to depend on the province or area, if they allow burning of oil in oil heaters or burners for personal heating I don't think they want a bunch of other chemicals in there. (northern ontario says its ok, southern ontario says no, not sure where they draw the line). The further east you go they seem to not like burning it.

May even depend on where you take it (store, dealership, depot...) if they send if for burning or recycling.

My local recycling depot has a separate drum for oil and coolant, but that's it.

Landfill or fire stations take it here. Just search with your city in google it should be easy to find.

If you are in Ottawa (where I live), there is a waste explorer online: https://app06.ottawa.ca/cgi-bin/search/ ... q=&lang=en
You can search different items, and it will tell you if you can throw it out, recycle, or where you can take it back as some places participate in those programs.
Perhaps your city has something similar?
I take it back to the nearest oil changers to me.

Also for anyone who likes changing their own oil, take a look at fumoto valves on Amazon. Not really a money saver but time saver for sure. Just turn the valve to open and watch the oil pour.

Same here in Ottawa. I left it at Mr.Lube and he asked me if it was just oil. I said I poured a bit of cooking oil as well, he took it but told me not to do that again. I had no idea so now I have different jugs for different oils.
Uh, yeah, I'd like to speak to a Mr. Tabooger, first name Ollie.

Not knowing the sale was over, I went on the 29th and the full price rang up. Told the cashier I thought it was on sale. She was polite and said it was, but it was over on Sunday. New sales start today till ... So no 30 day offer for me. Nothing awesome this way. Is that 30 days a YMMV? Now I've read your post and I've tried looking at the flyer and website trying to find this statement or policy but can't seem to find it. Would be good to refer to if needed again.

In Edmonton, you can take the recycled oil and filters to an eco station for free. This pan is quite big hence it might not fit under some cars even when jacked up high. You'll need ramps.

I went the day after the sale ended to get some other stuff but the sale price was still on the display for the pan. When it rang up as full price, I told the cashier the sign said it was on sale. She was also polite and said the sale had just ended but said they would honour the price marking error and reduced the price for me.

Unfortunately, they don't participate in SCOP.
