ELC Coolant Flush Waste Products

Getting ready to make the switch to ELC. Just wondering what you guys are doing with all the fluids that this flush procedure creates? At 7 gallons of liquid per "dump" the flush procedure that I read created a minimum of 70 gallons of "waste". Obviously the initial coolant dump and subsequent coolant flushes should be disposed of properly, but are you catching and bottling the Restore and Restore+ flushes and subsequent water flushes as well? I want to do the responsible thing and I certainly don't want the EPA decending upon me, but I also want to be realistic about this. Any info or insight would be appreciated.

My ELC flushes were on 7.3 engines and not the 6.0, so I didn't have nearly as much waste come through in my procedure. I did capture the first 15 gallons that came out of the truck though. Used a great big farm bucket to catch it all and then put it in 3 5 gallon buckets. The only place in my whole town that would take it is a Jiffy Lube. After the first 15 gallons it was all heavily water diluted and just got rid of it.
