What kind of payment model is normally used for a commercial recycling business?

A friend of mine is starting a recycling business that will cater primarily to small businesses that go through a lot of recyclable material (coffee shops and milk/cream containers for example), and he is having a hard time figuring out what kind of payment structure to approach business owners with.
The plan is to take the recycling from the businesses to the depot to exchange them for the deposit on a weekly basis. The question is whether it is common with such businesses to offer to give a percentage of his earnings from the recycling back to the owner, and if so what percentage?
If this isn't the most common arrangement, then how much would it be appropriate to charge?
