what should I do with bad wvo?

I was given about 250gallons of wvo of which 20% or so is no good, way to nasty to even consider running through the centrifuge. I am new to the filtering world and started to realize I will probably be ending up with quite a bit of the gunk at the bottom that I'll have to find something to do with. So there is my question. Is the landfill the only option? Besides the money I'll be saving not having to buy fuel, I'm also into the recycling aspect of the deal. Has anybody found good solution for this? Also, there is no guarantee that the oil is free of water, will the centrifuge take care of that and if not, what about a standard diesel water separation filter?

Centrifuge up and running ( pics coming soon )
Still waiting on the V3, should arrive mid next week. Tank came without a cap, and a lousy weld job with ports going in on angles.

I have an agreement with a local restaurant owner to dump my sludge VO in his grease dumpster. He has free pick-up so he doesn't care as long as there is always room for his used grease. If I have a lot I'll dump half then wait for his pick up then dump the other half.

This is NOT the restaurant I pick up from.

Donate it back to the renderers!

Or, clean it up. You would be surprised how much a good hot settle and trip through the CF will improve the most nasty oil. I had a similar instance once. Never use any questionable oil for truck fuel.

Other ideas- 1. Clean it up and barter it with someone who burns it in a clean burn or waste oil burner (repair garage). 2. Put an add on craigslist. Advertise it FREE for Bear bait. You will get calls. Since I started CFing oil it hard to get enough grease for my own baits.
