Believe it or not if you're on city sewage most municipalities allow for dumping it into drains as most modern treatment facilities can handle it. Call your city and find out.

Also, what is a good coolant that I should put back into the Scoob? I'd prefer it being something you don't have to mix.
I run 75 distilled water / 25% or so green coolant, 1/2 a bottle water wetter. But that's down here.... fat chance of it freezing hurr.
After a little while I felt a little better, but very little. I needed a drink, I needed a lot of life insurance, I needed a vacation, I needed a home in the country. What I had was a coat, a hat and a gun. I put them on and went out of the room. Fairwell, My Lovely

Cooling System FAQ: Read if you want coolant information! - NASIOC
And the OP, if you haven't figured this out yet: Call your local waste management authority to learn how to properly dispose of used antifreeze in your area.
I never understood the thought process of paying $10 for a gallon of antifreeze, or paying 10$ for .5gal antifreeze, mixed with .5gal water..
And using no-name-branded antifreeze: is it really any different than Prestone, or other name-branded antifreezes? I think not. I'm not scared of using store-branded coolant, and never have been. If you maintain your coolant system like you're supposed to, and flush it accordingly, I've seen no ill effects of using it, personally.
