    Wanted: Oil - in or around Melb/outer suburbs/maybe wherever

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for any oil you might have too much of - I'm based in Abbotsford & North Melbourne, but also regularly travel out to the Yarra Valley/eastern suburbs - would travel depending on how much you might be interested in giving away.

    Cheers! -m

    Hi,
    I have a small amount of vegetable oil that I need to get rid of. Are you still interested in picking it up?

    Well at the moment it's only a couple of litres but I own a restaurant and that will increase over time.
    Basically I'm looking at ways to dispose of my waste oil.
    Would you pick up small amounts every couple of weeks or would it be better for me to store it and for you to pick up a larger amount all at once every couple of months?

    PS I'm still keen on picking oil - preferably in quantities of 100+ litres to make it worth the travel, or a regular supply if any fryer owners are interested! Cheers!
