Happened to me!!!
I stopped at my friends restaurant to check my barrels and have a sandwich and a beer. The drums where full almost to the rim. I told him I would be back in the morning to pump them out.
Arrived there early the next day, set up my pump and barrels that I pump into, went over opened the lids and found nothing!!! 110 gallons gone, they pumped them dry!! I was pi$$ed to say the least.
I put locks on my drums after they got pillaged. The problem is trying to get the kitchen help to lock them back up, to say the least the locks didn't last long.
Yeah, therein lies the catch. You want to lock them up from grease thieves, but not make it difficult for the restaurant to dump the grease. I like that $180 unit. I might break out the welder and make my own.

Hey fab, so are you saying you just have them put the used oil back in the cubies and then what? They leave the cubies where? Inside and you have to go in and pick it up?
They leave it inside for me. I haul from 28 resturants and they all love it this way. Less paper and plastic trash for them to deal with, and no mess "out back".
I like it also. It gives me a chance to interact with the cooks, and almost all have been filtering the oil before they put it back in the cubies. I have no need for drums, or pumps etc...........
Interacting with your suppliers will help secure your oil. I've had other "biodieselers" try and pay my resturants for their oil, but I've not lost one in over 4 years. Some of the resturants will invite me in for a free meal once in a while.
