Used Oil

Didn't know where to put this, so it goes here.
After an oil change, where can i safely and legally dispose of the used oil?
Will local shops take it off my hands?
Thanks

I have a 5 gallon gas can that I use to collect my used motor oil and when it's full it's off to my friendly neighborhood Canadian Tire. They also take used oil filters.

a 55 gallon drum? Oh how I dont envy you the day it's full haha.
That's good to know hartland will take it, butcrappy tire is so much more closer to my place. I'll let them deal with it!

Thanks for the replies guys!
