Recycle it with our solid waste agency. I usually have to do my recycling once a month there anyway, so I drop it off free of charge.

I would never because chainsaw bar oil is thick and sticky and doesn't fly off the bar as fast.

I wouldn't either, but around here, we have winter bar oil and the regular stuff. The regular stuff can get as thick as glue when the temps drop below...“colder than a welldigger’s butt” (there are other sayings I won't repeat here ) and you have to cut...timber, pulpwood, firewood, blowdowns and clearing roads.

I know a couple of thrifty guys who cut their summer bar oil with used motor oil for better flow in the winter...and winter cutting around here is from late November 'till mid April.

I still don't do it as I only use about 2-3 gallons per winter, so I just buy the thinner winter stuff.

My county has a recycling of used oil session about 4 times a year, so I save it up.

Most auto parts store and gas stations must take old oil back and recycle it if they sell it. If your old oil is suspect to have contamination they can refuse to take it.
