Used Cooking Oil

Maybe this belongs in the Help Needed section, but I'm curious how others dispose of/recycle used cooking oil. I recall an episode of Good Eats in which Alton Brown advocated just dumping it in the yard, since it is biodegradable. That's not feasible for me, as I live in a condo. Anyone know of any collection centers or options other than the old "collect it in a coffee can and throw it out with the trash" routine?

Call a restaurant where you may have a contact (or maybe you're already a regular there) and ask if you can dump your used oil in their collection container. Speaking for Ardeo + Bardeo, we have two barrels out back that are collected every two weeks and the oil is recycled into bio-fuel. I'd certainly be OK if you wanted to dump your oil here, provided it's not so many gallons that I won't have anywhere to dump my fryer oil! (I'm assuming you're talking about a pint or quart of oil at a time.)
