Looking to start a small wvo collection company

I want to start a (very) small wvo collection company and don't really know what steps I should take to begin collecting. From driving around it looks like S animax has a lot of the business tied up. I can get my hands on a truck with a lift gate, containers, and a pump. I don't know what I'd like to do with the oil once its collected (turn it into fuel, sell to renderer).

Any information or suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. Please bare with me as I'm trying to learn as much as possible while avoiding costly mistakes.

Thanks,

I'd suggest knowing the destination would be a bloody good idea before planning and starting the journey!

To start off I think I'd sell to a renderer because I don't have a storage space where holding tanks can be kept (yet). The next step (if I choose to take it that far) would be finding such a space once funds are available.

A few more thoughts: If I'm looking to compete with larger companies to get accounts is it not advisable to drop a container for an account to fill when they're already contracted? Obviously I would be talking to the owner of any establishment and get their permission before doing this. Does anyone have experience as an independent doing this sort of thing?
