My wife's vehicle needs the belt change.... It being a Hybrid scares me a bit, should it?

Last time I checked I was told to dispose of it down the drain with several gallons of water per qt of ethylene glycol based antifreeze that was about 1.5 yrs ago. I have to do my wife's 02 runner soon I might come and observe

No idea. I assume it's a Honda.

That does not sound right. Who told you that?

I think most walmarts will dispose of any vehicle fluid in their recylclers back in automotive. I've taken plenty of oil, brake fluid, ATF, etc. there over the years.

Edit: I think O'Reilly accepts that stuff, too.

They don't. I've tried.

Hadn't thought of Walmart though

No. Do not do this. It is equivalent to dumping used engine oil down the drain.

I know if I did that at my shop I would be looking at multiple 10s of thousand in fines.

C'mon, it's not like putting oil down the drain. That's totally different.

Also, I think the rules governing shops are different than individuals. FWIW I've been told toilet before as well.

I think you're right Marco... I read some years ago that biological plants would handle ethylene glycol coolants just fine (not saying it's good or legal). Not surprised that commercial entities can't dump it down the drain but hey, in industry you can't throw out light bulbs or batteries like we all do at home either. I know the drain cleaner I use at home would be illegal to dump down the drain at work even though it all flows to the same plant. Either way, coolant is definitely better than used oil that's for sure (in practice at least, legally I don't know)....
