That's very un-Ann Arbor of you.

I put my old oil in a plastic baggie and then left in in my friends basement when I moved. It didn't leak for the most part... sorry Nate.

Most auto supply places take it as well or you can do what Rob said about the whole throwing it at garrett, that would be kinda funny, in a funny run like hell after you do it kind of way.

Oh, and those hair dye bottles that they sell at the beauty supply store are great for oil filling.

I have a little syringe to inject gear oil into scooters. It works pretty well, but only holds about 50ml so it needs to be refilled a few times. Only takes about five minutes though.

From an environmental standpoint, one should never dump used oil in the trash. Most service stations have drums to store and recycle it. Just ask them if it is ok to drop some used oil off. If they say yes, then do it, if they refuse, drop the oil off anyway, late on a Sunday night.
