De-Winterizing / Summerizing TT

We will be "summerizing" our TT at the end of this month when it appears from hibernation. I have read through the many Threads and the FR video dealing with this subject but no one has mentioned the disposal of the drained diluted pink stuff. I might be over thinking this.
How do y'all handle the disposal of the "pink stuff"after you have completed the process?

Thanks for the inputs.

Happy Trails

RV antifreeze is non-toxic.
It can be disposed by pouring down the drain or sewer.
And while I probably wouldn't, it can be dumped on the ground with no ill effects to the environment.

Automotive antifreeze IS TOXIC. DO NOT do the same with it.

I usually just flush it out of the faucets into the waste tanks, camp and then dump at the dump station like normal.

Further note, if it were toxic or harmful or needed special disposal why would we put it in our camper freshwater lines?

It is not harmful to pets if you do happen to drain it on the ground, most folks just flush it to the waste tanks. Run plenty of water thru your system to ensure there is no after taste

I would bet the farm that someone, somewhere is using something like methanol or similar to winterize.

Back in my younger (not so smart days) I used to think I was invincible. I was a member of a dirt bike racing team, that morphed into a street bike (sportbike) racing team, that eventually morphed into a street bike stunt team. The team name was "suicide saints". I just kept using the name.
