Changing your engine oil at home can save you money, and the good news is most AutoZones will take used engine oil. AutoZone also typically accepts other sensitive recyclables, like car batteries, radiators, and transmissions.
So as you continue performing at-home fixes, you can count on a safe place to dispose of your car parts carefully. Make sure to call your local store beforehand to check what parts they accept.
