You will need a container to store the used oil in, and a method to move the oil from your fryer to the storage container. These storage containers can be outdoor bins or indoor tanks, and there are various ways to transfer the used oil. A Grand Natural Inc representative can schedule a time to visit your location and assess the type of fryers you are using, your volume of grease and frequency of pickup, and will suggest the best setup for your location’s needs.
Every store is different, and every need has more than one possible solution. Most restaurant managers think the easiest way to get started is using an outside bin to store their used oil, usually placed inside a trash area to keep it from public view. But outdoor bins have some disadvantages:
All of these issues are solved by moving your used oil storage indoors. Many managers think they don't have room for an indoor tank; this is seldom the case. While many providers may only have one or two storage tanks available to choose from, other providers offer several options. Advantages of indoor bins:
A store that cooks with large amounts of fryer grease will need a larger capacity tank (or will need more frequent service visits). Some kitchens have limited floor space and need a unit with a small footprint. We offer tank solutions that fit most any need.
First, let one of our reps visit your store for a site evaluation; many of our customers who thought they didn’t have room for an inside tank were happy to find they did – and often gained extra shelving space! If you do need to use outdoor bins, there are ways to prevent grease theft.
Part of the process of bringing on a new customer is to evaluate their store volume and set up a pickup schedule so they will be serviced before their tanks or bins reach full status. But positive spikes in your business may throw this schedule off. If your indoor tank has overflowed, call our Customer Service Center, 855-519-5550. Also follow these immediate suggestions:

We normally do not charge our customers for our used cooking oil storage equipment, although there may be occasional circumstances where we need to charge a small installation or delivery fee. This would be disclosed prior to entering into a service agreement. Grand Natural Inc maintains ownership through the agreement period. In this way, our customers get their full rebate, rather than having a portion of a rebate applied towards the purchase of the equipment.
