Around here, unused gasoline has to be disposed of at a hazardous waste facility. Our local sanitary landfill has a "hazardous waste disposal" day twice a month in the summer/fall, closed in winter. Here, it's free. Other places tend to require a fee.

100LL is pretty stable. I might just meter a gallon into each fill up.

Assuming that it is really too old to use (AVGAS lasts a LONG time…..), try calling your local volunteer fire department - they might have a place they store flammable for future use in training burns….. at least we used to way back in the day! It was a good way to get rid of stuff no one wanted dumped in the creek!

Burn it!

Yes, as mentioned already run it some farm equipment or motorcycle or anything w/o a catalytic converter. It's great stuff and the equipment will love it. Find some farmer to help you if necessary.
