It depends on what service was done to your car. If you, say, had your coolant changed, then yes, it would be legit to charge for proper disposal of old coolant. If you had an oil change even. But then again if for example you had anything done that does not produce hazardous waste, I looked and could find no State nor the Federal EPA mandating a fee.
