Sourcing WVO

Is anyone else having trouble sourcing WVO these days? I remember when I would get a free meal for taking the stuff off their hands... now I've had people tell me that they would sell it to me by the gallon

Seems to me it was only a matter of time before more people and businesses caught on to the biodiesel thing. Just wish biodiesel was more readily available in my area.

The Federal $1 credit for Biodiesel product has expired. Lets see how many people will get paid for their oil now.
I used to get emails and calls from people in New York looking to buy 5000+ gallons at a time when i put an ad on craigslist for 500+ gallons I had tainted with boilout. I told them to **** off and quit putting us small guys out of the market. I told them If they want oil so bad buy it from Darling they got most of it anyway. They told me Darling wouldn't sell to them. My response was "THERES YOUR SIGN"

You can try your local school or grocery store. Im going to hit up a grocery store near me because their container from Darling has been full for 2 weeks.

My best luck has been with BBQ places and the other half is constant and diligent CL searches. I have lost 3 sources. 1 to Darling which were paying and taking grill grease too. The other 2 went out of business.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

Cashflo is correct. The last of the checks have been cut, IMHO. There is no way that the payments can continue without the Blenders credit. The up side is that it should be much easier for hobbyists to secure collection agreement.
A word of advice- Offer to pay for the oil AND actually PAY them for it. When one door closes, another opend. THe door is open for hobbyists now. Make those relationships strong with a nominal payment for oil. When that occurs, you will not have to worry about sources. They will keep frying, and you will keep your supply. It makes a win/win relationship.

The funny thing is most of them don't even know how much they are getting paid. At least the ones ive talked to that use Darling.
I think most of them get around $20 a quarter. I spend more than that eating at my sources (most of them) a month.

Does anyone have a link to this $1 credit you are talking about? This is the first I have heard anything about a credit. Looks like I need to spend more time here....

When I was try to put together a WVO set up I got my WVO from my college cafe, about 50 gallons every two weeks for free. I just left a barrel and picked it up right at the loading dock.
