Where can I dispose of contaminated vegetable oil?

My wife's benz drives on Waste Vegetable Oil, which we pick up from a local restaurant. Then we filter it, and drive her car. No problem. Except during a recent spate of wet weather the slapdash cover I'd designed to keep the oil free of water was shown to be... inadequate.
So I've got a lot of oil (probably a pick up truck full) in 5 gallon cartons that I can't drive my car on and need to get rid of. We also had a little spill (comedy of errors) so this stuff also has some of that spill absorber stuff in it. All told not good stuff to recycle I'd think...
I'm in Los Angeles, but even the type of business to google would be helpful.
Standard trash dumps don't seem to want it...
