I put mine in a recycled can, let it harden, put it in a grocery bag and put it in the trash.
It's not good to pour it down your drain.

I pour mine in my burn pile.

It will clog your drains.

It won't harden. Its like deep fryer cooking oil. I have to pour it somewhere and the garbage men won't take it. I put it out in a glass canister this morning and they left it at the end of the driveway

It will plug up your drain, I have a funnel and 2 Liter plastic bottles so I can dispose of my oil and not mess up my sink.

I usually keep the empty oil bottle and refill with the bad stuff, toss in the garbage.

When I was growing up, we just added it to the mulch pile/worm bed.

Not the drain! I put it in an old coffee can and bury it in the garbage.

If you don't have anything to put it in like a coffee can. Then make sure it's cold and double bag your trash pour it in then trash it.
