Default How to prevent stains on driveway when cleaning chain?

Guys, I'm running out of IKEA cardboard boxes to tear apart. I need a more sustainable solution. I'm thinking black garbage bags, but I reckon those have small holes on them. What do you use? Thank you.

Have an off cut of lino that gets rolled out for oily jobs. Spray of wd40 and wipe of a rag after and its clean again. Roll it up and chuck it back in the garage for next time. Got it for nothing out of des kelly carpets
