I would also do what Medic said..
Go to Wal Mart and buy one of these large storage containers
... Theyre about $5.
But theyre wide enough to catch stuff and not make a mess. (the pic shows me draining the coolant on our ex 2007 Impala).
In the past- I also did the same on our 2003 Trailblazer.
On that one- I was at 130,000 and I was doing a coolant swap.
So because of mileage- I also decided to change the upper and lower radiator hose...
So I simply drilled a hole into the lower hose and let it drain... I then replaced them.
