it's a bit of a mix... same buyer might get paid to take it away at once place and pay to take it at another...

it's all over the place.... all depends on how pushy the chip shop etc.. is and if they know what it's worth...

if they don't know it's worth anything they can still be paying a fiver for a 120litre drum to be taken away

i think the most people are paid for it is about 10p/litre

that forum should have all the information you need.... best to search trhough for what you want tho... it's all been talked about before and they have a short fuse for people who don;t use the search function !

Went into a pub yesterday, a friend said to landlord, what do you do with oil, "A lad used to collect it, but hasnt been for a while, there 4 cans (nearly 80L) outside, would you like to take it? I used to put it in centre of bin and pile rubbish all the way round it..........."
I explained how bad it was for the environment when it decomposes anaerobically.

10p Litre is a fair price for buyer and seller, imv.  As I wrote earlier links on http://www.vegetableoildiesel.co.uk/forum/viewthread.php?tid=8253 cover collection and WTNs etc etc.

old thread I know, but for those after veg oil currently, for passover 2011 sainsbury's are doing a pure 1 litre bottle of sunflower oil for 45 pence.
check your local for stock, that's cheap

Rakusen's Pure Sunflower Oil 1L is the brand to look for.

Thought the idea was to use the waste product, isn't it a bit unethical burning food grade oil when there's so much used around?

Complex - fossil/dino diesel adds to global warming, but there's a fair bit of it involved in cultivating, harvesting, transporting, pressing, processing, filtering, packaging and distributing vegetable oil. At least there are no nasty additives as there are in forecourt diesel, and it is possible to argue modern processed oil (rapeseed especially) is not particularly good for the human body. But on a very basic level, oil from the ground doesn't take up agricultural land, it's all going to be used as fast as it can be mined and I would much prefer it as fuel for a fast, comfortable motor car than to make some of the chemical warfare with its disasterous effects which we use on most of our farmed land.
