Good question!
To dispose of used brake fluid, pour it into a sealable container, then take it to a household hazardous waste facility.
Often the stores that sell brake fluid (i.e., gas stations, auto repair shops, and auto supply stores) will accept your used brake fluid drop-off. Just do some research beforehand to confirm that the location accepts this type of hazardous waste.
Another important step in caring for your car is doing regular insurance price maintenance. Not only does this ensure you always have the lowest price, but it is also the best way to get the insurance that fits your needs. The easiest way to do this often-forgotten maintenance?
