How dirty can free oil be?

I went by the nearby McDonalds today to start setting up my oil pickups in the local area. The manager said no problem on taking the oil. When I went to check out the oil storage bin, it was had a skim layer of crap on top, with a few inches of relatively clean oil under that, followed by a thick off white sludge layer, and then a layer of the fries and crap that got stuck in the fryers. Is this normal? I'm wondering if I can use this stuff or if I should just walk away??

Please! Please! Please! Be aware that the restaurant owner cannot give you permission to remove the oil from a commercial waste haulers container!

The minuet the oil is dumped into the container it belongs to the waste hauler!
You can be accused of "theft by conversion" if you take it. You MUST use your own containers or have them put it back in the "cubies" it comes in. Don't want to see you go to jail!!!!

The mess that comes out of the containers is fine, you'll have to filter out the "crunchies", and settle out the water before it can be used tho.........

OH #*&% !! Thanks Fabman- I didn't think I'd be stealing!! I guess the grease hauler doesn't do it out of the kindness of his heart, probably doesn't want me taking his profit. As far as the mess that comes out, after the water is gone, that's why you heat it, to get it all viscous again right?

Just glad I got to you in time, I don't think they will let you email from jail!

There are 2 ways to deal with "crappy" oil. Let it settle out and just take the oil from the top, OR, heat it to about 150 degF, which will force the water to the bottom, and also let the "crunchies" settle out also.

If you have "clean-looking" oil on top, and thicker oil under that layer, they are probably using 2 types of oil. Heating will help to "blend" the oils together.

I imagine after they are heated and blended together, the transesterfication process will keep them together right?
