KirkHarrod wrote:Actually, the grease renderer's generally only pay for the oil if you are producing 35 gallons of used oil per week. Less than that the restaurants generally pay to have the grease removed. Some restaurants are in the middle and they get the grease dumpster placed in the back of the restaurant for free removal.
Many restaurants do not have a place to store a big grease dumpster. I collect from several restaurants in Louisville and Frankfort. I filter the oil, dewater it, and then drive my truck with it.
I assure you, I am not "a day late and a dollar short." There is LOTS of grease out there. Some restaurants do not like to give the oil to the big , corporate, industrial grease companies (who make it into cosmetics or biodiesel, BTW). They prefer to give it to the local grease guy, because they like the "green " factor.
I do not steal from grease dumpsters, I only take what is given to me. I do not make biodiesel, I drive on straight waste vegetable oil. I have driven 6000 miles on restaurant grease since August. I am just "Advancing confidently in the direction of my dreams and endeavouring to live the life which I have imagined and I hope to meet with unexpected success."

Just out of curiosity, how do you de-water the grease?
(BTW, I think this method of conservation is fantastic!)
