the reason theres hardly anyone who takes used oil compared to years ago is that when oil cost over $100/barrel to pump out of the ground, it was cheaper to recycle used oil. so oil recyclers used to pay everyone (lube places, canadian tire, dealerships, etc) quite a bit for their oil. now that has flipped and places actually need to pay to have oil taken away.

it seems silly that we pay a recycling or eco fee up front, and now can hardly get rid of the used oil.
I thought the same if they don't accept your used oil they shouldn't charge you a recycling fee?

The stores are not charging you it's the government. Stores have to charge it.

that's whats throwing me off but thought it could be also read as an "or lubricants" as its own thing.

because it does list "heat transfer fluid" which sounds like coolant which isn't a lubricant.

brake fluid mixed with engine oil is fine. coolant (or anythign water based) mixed with engine oil is not.

Agreed.

Many of the locations I used allowed me (when not busy) to enter the shop and dump my jugs of old ATF and motor oil into the same pit. They said there's no difference between old fluids and it all goes to the same place.

I also go there for clean used containers. They give them away free.
