Does anyone have the cliff notes version of the 1506 process?

not really sure what the old procedure is but this is how my store does it

-scan everything in for claims

-it'll tell you where you need to put it (ignitables, toxic, UW:NA, trash, donate non-food/food, lab packer)

-put the items in seperate ziploc bags and individual boxes. you can put items with the same UPC in the same ziploc if space allows. If the bag is leaky, you need to double bag it.

-stuff that goes in the trash needs to be taken out of the wrapper/box.

-donations, you need to use your judgement of whether you can even donate it. there's boxes for food and non-food which you send out during warehouse day

-change the on hand quantity before you post

hope this helps

if it's leaking or was leaking you also have to put spill magic in the first bag before you double bag.

also never reopen a ziploc bag after it's already been close.

if you want to donate expired food, you have to say it's shelf damage instead of expired on the Telxon and you can only donate before the 14th of each month.

also, always keep a lid on the totes. if you lose or misplace the lid, you are supposed to have to go get a new tote with a lid that can be closed.

We have a lot of " hazardous waste" just thrown about in the trash bins. Only a matter of time before we get massive fines. No one follows the rules. Morons.

Just wondering why, the 1506 claims peeps are not contacting vendors for credit, especially when it comes to the amount of damaged items we get or at the least trying to return and get credit for items that did not sell. (ie all those gift set or toy items at christmas).

Unless your locality (state, city, county, etc...) has some sort of pick up program our new 1506 process is virtually worthless as far as the "hazardous waste" is concerned.

they buy almost all vendor items "non guaranteed" because it's a cheaper cost.

What exactly does lab packer mean? I don't remember anything in the ppl about lab packers. Is it a separate tote? Does it go with something specific? I get the rest of the program but when it says to put it in "Lab Packer" I'm never sure what to do with it.

Big oversized ziploc bags that come in a box from the warehouse (I think). You use them to pack leaky items, chemicals, etc. before putting them in one of the marked totes.

I work with someone who thinks it's easier to damage merchandise and toss it in 1506 than to put it up. I want to say something to my SM but she is buddy buddy with him and has worked for the company for decades.

Right, That part I know. But sometimes the telxon just says to sort it to "lab packer" but doesn't give a tote designation. I never know what to do when it just says "Must be put in Lab Packer".
