Oil draining tips & tricks ???

Another Noob question.
I didn't get to change my oil after last weekend cuz i got massive poison oak.
Anyway.....
1) What is the best type of container to drain into?
2) What do you do with the oil? I want to recycle of course.
3) Is synthetic oil recyclable like dino oil?

I read some stuff on the Fram Sure Drain system....any big negatives? or other types of systems?

Thanks
Mike
BTW I did a search for "oil change", "oil recycling", "oil drain", "drain", "recycling"

I have the Fram Sure Drain on all four of my vehicles. Not real fast but definitely handy, and much cleaner than taking a oil drain plug out each time.

I prefer the blitz oil drain container

- Larger diameter container that has a closeable neck for easy draining

I also keep a 5 gallon bucket with lid that I can use to hold several changes if I am to lazy to drop off at a recycle center

You should be able to find a local place to drop off the oil - look up your zip at earth911.org
But basically you can drop off motor oil (synth/dino), as well as hydraulic & gear oil at your local walmarts, autozones etc....
"THere are fewer places that accept used coolant (do not mix with oil)

Excellent. Something like the blitz looks about right for me.
The earth911.org site http://www.earth911.org/master.asp is great.
