Collecting WVO -- 5 gal plastic bucket?

I'm lining up my sources of WVO and some of them aren't "big" restaurants, meaning they go through less than 15 gallons of oil per week. Two of the restaurant owners I spoke with heat their oil up to clean their fryers and then dispose of it......

Will the 5 gallon buckets (with lids) that you can buy at Home Depot be okay to collect the WVO? The one guy is using this kind of bucket to collect the WVO right out of the fryer when its hot. I'm wondering if the heated WVO will deteriorate the plastic and contaminate the oil.



Thanks!

The restaurant I tried wouldn't pour the hot oil into my 5-gal buckets, and I cant blame them. I dont think I'd do that...

They said their oil comes in plastic jugs (approx 5 gal each).

Those are the "cubies" everyone refers to.



Clay, I dont know if that's how they even come, I've never seen any kicking around there.... I'm not too worried, I plan on putting a 55gal steel drum over there this weekend. Good oil source too, its a ritzy restaurant who changes their oil every night. Just wish it wasn't 2 hours from where I live now.
