Default how do I (Legally) dispose of antifreeze coolant?

Drained my system, I'd rather Not flush it as I'm pretty sure that's Illegal and ethically wrong.

Dig a small hole in your backyard, pour it in, fill in the hole.

You should just call the local fire department and ask about the country's hazardous waste disposal police.y And you probably will have to take it to some trash disposal site. Or if your using a non-toxic coolant you can just pour it down the drain :classic:
