" Legal maybe but still not a good idea"'

Don is right. It is legal in some cities, but never good for the environment. There is more then one type of sewage processing system in use in the U.S. and some, like the one here in Anchorage do very little to treat the waste. It removes large chunks, treats the rest with chemicals and flushes it out into Cook Inlet. It is not designed to handle toxic waste materials. If you have waste antifreeze to dispose of check with your local government for their recommendations, ask your local repair shops, or look for a recycler in the Yellow Pages.
