Hey - don't all these petroleum products already exist in the ground? I mean, I know we've refined them & added stuff to them, but ultimately, all that stuff was derived from materials that already exist in the environment. Just Sayin'...

Exactly. That had me a bit confused as well.

I'm no bunny hugger......But I do have a well and use it for drinking.....Since these products are no big deal...why don't y'all drink them....????

I save my lacquer thinner to mix with RC Cola. The cocktail makes watching WWE Monday Night Raw & Friday Night Smackdown easier to watch.

Isn't that what Brock Lesner did a while back??

I already have :lol: Seriously though, as far away as our well is, it would get so diluted out it wouldn't harm anything. Also remember, the water you're drinking could be thousands of years old, so I think a little bit of thinner isn't any worse than what's already in it... :unsure: :P

After using brake fluid for stripping a body, I pour it back into its bottle for another few uses.


Doug makes an excellent point here folks . Brake fluid will allow the solid paint fragments to settle in the bottom of a container in usually about a week . I do the same thing . Yes , I have recycled old Brake fluid to strip paint on several projects . Meanwhile , see if there are hazardous material recycling drives in you're area . Often times such materials are picked up in cities . Ed Shaver

Not near me you don't! Please guys Do Not BE LAZY ! You can take all of these to your service station, and they will recycle it for you.

since you didn't read my first post SSAndy is only 13...He needs to do just as you do...I don't want this in my groundwater, as I use my well not city water

I don't think many get it...I work with toxic substances daily...As I am a CPCO..I follow all EPA rules on disposal...triple rinse, etc

Fight with me all you want....You do dispose correctly you state...because you must understand the need...As Bill stated

They're far more toxic after being refined. Also, most of the petroleum products are located very deep in the ground, usually well below the water table. By dumping it on the surface, you're putting it right into the water table, even if it seems far enough away from the actual pumping point.

Definatly..but water is its worst enemy....looses its ability to work...the solids settle and can be removed

You go ahead and dump toxic chemicals on the ground and drink the well water if you want to Andy ! This is America after all-people should be able to be as socially irresponsible as they want. (this is sarcastic humor BTW)

Keep in mind though I was only 10/11 then, and I didn't know of any other places to dump it. :lol:

Don't forget to wear an apron, rubber gloves, paint mask, knee pads, and proper helmet with face shield when disposing of said chemicals.
