My county accepts antifreeze at the local refuse transfer station. I dump it there.

Yeah, I've heard lots of people say that. I've probably got one somewhere but certainly not convenient.

This site should list out all your local auto repair places and what fluids they accept: http://earth911.org/recycling/automotive/

Click on "Find your local recycle solution for automotive" in the middle of the screen.

Not sure if you will have to specify your location or it takes it from your IP address.

Yep, dump it into the now empty new bottles and take it down to the local parts store that accepts it.
