Hello Everyone,

My name is Thomas and I would like to know if any of you guys know where I can render my organic natural beeswax anywhere in the United States.

Ps: I have a lot of quantity

Kind Regards

First, welcome to Beemaster.
Most beekeepers clean there own wax. If you are good with your hands, I would recommend building a solar wax melter. Once built, it requires the least amount of work. Your other choice is to get a couple of large pots put water in the bottom and melt it do. Once melted pour it into another  container that is covered with mesh like cheese cloth.
Bee very careful. Wax is very flammable.
