Default CRT coolant inside projection TV hazardous?

I'm taking apart an old rear projection TV to get rid of it piece-wise.

There are some clear, odorless, liquid CRT coolant sealed on top of each
CRT. I accidentally spilled some inside the cabinet. What is the proper way
to dispose of these liquid?

According to one web site, it contains ethylene glycol and glycerine. Should
I mix it with with my car's old coolant and recycle it?

The proper recycling method depends on your location. Different government
agencies require different disposal. From a practical viewpoint, you can
safely dispose of it in any sanitary sewer system and it will be broken down
completely within days by the bacteria in the system. You could pour it on
the ground and the same thing would occur and other than the risk of
ingestion by animals it would cause no problems.
