Speedylube ripoff

Badly needed to get the oil changed so I went to the Speedylube that is associated with the dealer. I am given two choices, about 43 for just a change or 50 for the Eco option. I am told Eco means that they will recycle the oil. These places have been recycling oil for years, why in the world would they just throw it away and pay the hazardous waste fee instead of recycling? This does smack of being a huge ripoff, heck the price for a basic change seems high but like I said, the car badly needs the oil changed.
