Years ago when I was a safety guy, I used to have to get urine samples to test folks for MDA (methylenedianiline). On those days I'd drink Mt. Dew out of one of the test bottles.. sure helped lighted the mood on test day! :lmao:

hhmmm...not the same recipe we used when i was 'tending.

equal parts tequila, soco, malibu and amaretto and twice as much blue curacao, top off with pineapple juice. used to do pitchers of antifreeze all the time.

I lived two years in the Texas Panhandle... for two years I was constantly pressured to believe Texas was the greatest nation on earth!

Great steak and people though... edit: the people were nice, the steak tasted good. :D

a little off subject maybe but what are you supposed to do with used antifreeze? take to quicky lube like spent oil?

Put it in the cats bowl? :eek: Seriously, do not mix it with oil. JL and others might accept it....not positive. I dump mine in a 55gal drum and when ful I haul it out to Mesa Oil.

Don't ask me where I saw this but you can try going here:

http://www.earth911.org/master.asp

Supposedly this website will provide a list of locations where you can take oil, antifreeze, fluids, etc for recycling...

kitchen sink. with lots of running water. ethalyn glycol (however the heck you spell that) is used to treat water at waste plants, so as long as you're not dumping tons of it, it shouldn't be a problem.

Contrair moname'.....EG is a hazardous waste and is not acceptable in the waste water system......something about dead fish downstream of the plant.... :rolleyes: ;)

Douglas County has hazardous waste pickup three times a year. We take stuff like used anti-freeze and drop it off there.

Contrair moname'.....EG is a hazardous waste and is not acceptable in the waste water system......something about dead fish downstream of the plant.... :rolleyes: ;) must be put down approved wastewater pipes, (such as kitchen sink, toilet etc), not storm sewers and it can't be in high quantities. if it goes through a waste treatment plant first, it is treated through some sort of uv treatment.




What about the toxicity of Ethylene Glycol?

“The City has not performed analysis for Ethylene Glycol, per se, at the treatment plant inflow. However, ethylene glycol, while toxic at high concentration, is highly treatable at the concentrations received by a wastewater treatment plant. It is broken down by the biological processes just like all of the other organic compounds received for treatment. Of course, the discharge of “significant quantities” (hundreds of gallons) of relatively concentrated ethylene glycol could result in a toxic condition being created at our treatment plant. However, it’s highly unlikely that service shops will ever release such volumes.”

Description of the actual policy:

“The city allows automotive service facilities to discharge the flushings of automotive cooling systems into the sanitary sewer system PROVIDED that all coolant which can practically be drained from the system is first captured for recycling and/or off-site disposal. If all coolant is first drained and captured, the City deems the finish flushings to be in compliance with applicable sanitary sewer discharge regulations.”

what does this have to do with China? Does the water get sent over to them for drinking water? :confused:

Sorry Ige. I'm not convinced that putting it in the sink is ok. Maybe in Commerce City. Our waste heads towards Californa and you know how those bastards are. I'll let them drink my sh*t water, but not my HASMAT. I like the cat bowl idea, now if only I could find a cat big enough to drink it all.

you'll kill a cute fuzzy little kitty, but not a californian :confused: :hill:

Ige is right.

I called and called all around one time looking to drop off a few gallons of old anti freeze. Waste Management told me for small quantities that flushing it down the toilet was recommended. No one in town recycled AF where I was at (Iowa).

I said your kidding right? And the dude said that was their official, "unofficial" policy.

Sorry I'm too granola to flush what I know to be toxic into our drinking water. There was a time when burning tires was an acceptable practice also. How about a poll of what people currently do?

I sent an inquiry to clearchoiceantifreeze asking if they would accept small, clean, quantities from DIY wrench turners and here is the reply:

Most definitely! You can drop it off at our shop: 9009 Quince St,
Unit C, Henderson CO 80640 We are essentially just east of the flea
market at I-76 and 88th Ave. You turn north on Quince, onto the
Andesite Rock and Gravel Company.

We're usually here 7-4.

Warmly, Chris

We just flush it down the toilet, so bring by as much as you like.
