My waste oil goes to a hazardous waste site. Most anchorages have these sites, in the French islands they are more convenient than ATM machines. I keep a separate five gallon jug just for waste and dump it whenever convenient or full.
Living at anchor the space taken up by two additional 20 liter jerry jugs would be too valuable. If they were not so expensive outside of North America I would throw away one of the two I have and buy a pail or something whenever I needed to change or transfer my 10 gallons of hydraulic oil. Prices $36 US in St. Lucia, $44 in Martinique.
