What were the companies going to do with the used grease? Do they pay a company to pick it up? If so they were the ones getting ripped off.

wait... taking used veggie oil is a crime? O_o

Four hundred and thirty thousand dollars worth of used cooking oil?? That just seems insane. I would think a semi tanker of the stuff would be worth maybe $1000 to someone, tops. Either the used oil business is much more lucrative than I thought, or that's some funky cop math.

Biodiesel has turned used oil into big business, apparently.

FTFA: Later, they would sell it to a New Hampshire business that uses it for animal feed and biofuel.

I thought my steak tasted a bit rich recently.

I actually know Andrew Jeremiah. He's a wanna be wheeler and dealer who has consistently been involved in shady deals from the day I met him, and apparently long before. Drives a Mercedes that runs on used veg oil, and it smells like french fries when he drives past you. Wears the same cardigan with a hole in it every time I see him even though he brags about how well off he is. Tends to drink way too much wine till he passes out.


In fact, here he is:

About 10 years ago, he was drunk in a bar flashing a big wad of cash. On the way out he caught a baseball bat to the face and was robbed.

Not the brightest guy.

You filter it properly and a modified diesel vehicle runs great on the stuff.  Although your exhaust will smell like french fries.

Look up the price of diesel.

In Japan, restaurants are graded by the freshness of their cooking oil. The top restaurants deep-fry in new oil. They sell their used oil to the next class of restaurants and so on down a literal food chain to the crappy little places which use cooking oil so old it is to all intents and purposes crude petroleum.

Yes, there is a market for used cooking oil. It can be used a little longer in the restaurant business, or fed to livestock, or burned as fuel, or processed in some way to make something saleable.

One man's garbage is another man's treasure. Simpsons did an episode on that, too. That's where I got one of my favourite mild swear words, Krapenfest. Homer uses it for garbage day, but I use it for Christmas.
