 What ot do with Engine Coolant/antifreeze

I have to admit that for years I have sorta neglected changing coolant on my cars letting them go for up to seven years before selling the car. I also founde in years gone by that when I changed it somehow the system seemed to get mucked up perhaps due to the water that was added to the coolant.

Anyway, I am thinking of keeping my Tundra longer and think maybe I should clean up act and change the coolant. But I used just let it go down the drain, not acceptable practice today, got a dog poisonous. Hard to be so neat with that stuff on the drive.

What do you guys do if you change your coolant, how do you dispose of it?

I was planning on draining as much as can, then skip the flushing, then just fill with a 50 50 mix of distilled water and coolant, any issues? This was the only way I thought I could contain the chemicals and not introduce any of my well water issues to the system.

Most autopart stores will recycle your used anitfreeze. Also, Tractor Supply Store will recycle up to 5 gallons at a time of oil, antifreeze, ect. at a time.

Toyota use a red colored antifreeze. It is non-toxic but you should still take it to a recycler. It also has special lubricating properties for the water pump so you might want to get they same stuff and not the green stuff.
