paying restaurants for thier grease

I just recently noticed that some companies are paying restaurants $1 a gallon for their grease. How can grease companies afford to pay that much. The last I heard grease was only bring in about .12 -.14 a pound.

Did I miss something?


They'll come to a restaurant

They'll come to a restaurant and say they'll pay them a dollar for their oil. The contract states that they will buy their oil for a dollar, but what it doesn't say is that restaurant grease is typically only 60-80% of actual oil. So they will pay them a dollar a gallon on 60-80% percent of their product. Which for a 55 gallon drum at 60% yield equals only 33 gallons of oil. A difference of 22$ and a bait and switch hidden tactic.
