Where to dispose of engine coolant?

I'm getting ready to flush my radiator/water pump housing out and don't know what to do with all the radiator fluid. I Would just let it drain into the grass but i'm conscious of the environmental effects... i mean i can't see any good in raising the boiling point and increasing the corrosion resistance of the soil after adding radiator fluid to it.

So where do you guys take your old radiator fluid to? Thanks.

you could man up and do shots, or do what i do with oil or anything, bring it to nearest Garage or oil change place and leave it at the front of the garage when they are closed. Not sure about where you live but most places will charge you a little for disposal fees. Ill be damned if im giving someone 5$ to throw something away from me.

Ya, take it to your nearest automotive store, and they'll dispose of it. We get people all the time with used oil/coolant etc etc dropping it off at our shop.

Better yet if you hate your neighbors and you want to get back to them pour it in their front lawn! J/k i think advance auto parts will dispose of it for free.

Advance Auto disposes used oil ONLY. I used to work there. But just dump it in there anyway, most people do it, chances are the employees wont care.
