Just curious, but shouldn't that little problem be sorted out 'before' you started business? Ecologically speaking I would have though so...... :?

i've gotta ask, what sort of business generates marine fuel oil that must be disposed?

and... when you say "many bottles" can you quantify that? 1L? 100Litres??

As I believe her husband's in the bunker fuel inspection business, I would presume they are probably 1 litre bottles and after several hundred samples from each fuel hold of a large vessel, it would only take a little while to accumulate a rather large quantity of bunker fuel (which is not much good for anything else).

why not sell it in bulk to a local boat man? (assuming it can power all sorts of marine crafts)
