The owners don't want to drive to the recycler to drop off the oill and still have to pay for the disposal!
With so many small businesses wanting to get rid of their WVO there, I might have been just born in the wrong country it seems. Anyway, many small restaurants and snackbars in my country send their waste cooking oils and greases to soap factories, mostly because the biodiesel market is quite limited here and the ethanol lobby is strong.
