Fast food joint has two sets of trash cans - One marked Liked it. And one marked Hated it.
Good feed back for the operator. If all the turkey roll salads start ending up in the hate can, time to at least smell the turkey.
Most people will put the remains in the like can. After all they chose
it out of all the possibilities. To buy something and say you hate it makes you appear a crazy person.
||A good idea, as long as both cans are emptied
regularly, and the amounts in them recorded at
the time they're emptied, and the *time* at which
they're emptied recorded.
||If one can gets full, customers will use the other,
regardless of what it says, so keeping them from
getting full is vital if you want the measurements
to be meaningful.
||Furthermore, since different cooks are on
different schedules, knowing *when* more waste
ends up in which bin is valuable, since it tells you
which of your cooks are good, and which are bad.
||Actually identifying what went into each waste
bin is likely to be a nasty job, if the trash has to
be directly inspected. Instead, I'd recommend an
automatic camera which watches the trash as it
||If it's fast food coloring wrappers by food type would help.
