For the second week in a row, 2 of my barrels are empty, and these are my biggest suppliers! They both fill a 55 gallon drum every week.
I guess its time to fab up some locking steel drums - WTF is this world coming to when someone has to steal grease? :Shoot2:

Maybe your supplier is giving it to someone else as well. Maybe the other person is buying it off your supplier. I would go talk to your supplier about this.

I just read an article about this, really big out west, guys are cutting chains and locks off of the barrels/dumpsters to steal it. They dont call it liquid gold for no reason.

They are stealing straight from my supplier. I already asked them if they were giving it to anyone else, and they said no. These are my dumpsters, with my company name on them - some people are just scumbags.

Honestly who could blame them? yes I know they're in the wrong here, but I blame it on the government...:tard:

Yet another reason i convince the cooks to put the oil back into cubies and leave them inside untill i come get them. A 55 gallon barrel full of fuel is alot of $$$ and an easy score. I have one barrel sitting outside and it has a locking ball valve but not a locked lid so they could suck it from the top. Hasn't happened yet but i may.

I have had someone snatch the 35 gallons or so from a chinese resturant that I frequent. I put my own barrel there, and they have been awesome about filling it, but 2-3 times not I have rolled by and found it empty.

Pisses me off, but I have a number of resturants now that give me access to thier locked grease dumpsters, as they are on an automatic pickup schedule from the renderers, and I always am there 2-3 days before thier next scheduled automatic pickup. I collected up about 500 gallons of nice oil last month via this little arrangement.

Course now I have found a small local chain that has 5 stores, and uses an AWESOME Canola blend non PH oil, this stuff settles out all most all particles in less than a week, and because of what they are cooking I usually have less than 10% goo at the bottom of my sample jars. Stuff looks almost new after a week of settling. I need to talk to the owner about setting 2 locked barrels at each of his stores and then make it a point to pick up every other week. I need to pick up a plasma cutter so I can not make ghetto looking locking lids cutting plate with a torch.

+1
Another benefit is no water in the cubies especially during rainy season..

Y'know I thought the same damn thing when I heard in MI that people were stealing the vases off of headstones in a couple cemetaries for scrap metal....... they were going for about $9 a piece cause they're heavy and made of bronze and copper. They got about a thousand or so of them. If that aint the lowest one can go I don't know what is...


What is this world coming to is right....

That's what they say about locking gas caps. It's those who drill and drain fuel tanks that are the problem as well. So whether it's WVO in a drum behind a restaurant or a diesel tank...nothing is safe anymore. :mad:

Yep same thing happened to me. I know who did it however and he knows that i make biodiesel. He did it to be an *** and now i'm out 40 gallons. However he fails to relaize that most of the places that turned me down are giving it to him, thus i know where HIS oil is and a few bottles of hydrocarbon based products may find there way into it.... or large sums of Acid.
