I checked ppl today, just had to renew an annual one, nothing about 1506.

Can you go into a little more detail over what you saw?

Sounds like the PPL regarding how to deal with the freezer truck and grocery 1506 perishables.
Its not new, its something that SIMs/STLs and up got.

If eggs or something goes bad, to reduce contamination in the stock room its all gotta be separated into bags, if the freezer truck isn't cold enough, you've gotta send the truck away without unloading it.... etc. etc. etc.

This rule has been around since the new company took over all management of our dumpsters 2+ years ago. I have had zero sleep so can't remember the name. It is not the person who picks it up, but the one you call for extra pickups.

Yeah we don't do any of that bullshit.. my employees here are so lazy they leave ice cream and expired or half open milk in 1506 box. We have never done degree testing on trucks. Seriously its not truck problems.... by the time we unload and go to stock all this shit gets warm and soggy. I'd never buy any food products from here. Remember when we got those fancy laser themometers in to test trucks?..they are awesome for getting degrees of your food while cooking.. its nice

now this may be just in my district but ppl is about new changes coming down on how one does 1506. The gun will soon prompt you to be able to donate some items, which I think will be great. But the biggest pain will be liquid itema that are either damage in the process of doing truck, or from other damage. So for instance, bottle of detergent gets damage half of it leaks in tote, your going to have to use , I forgot what they call it, but its like that stuff used when there is a spill on floor, pour that in there up and put in company provided bags....for what reason I have yet to figure out....why cant it go in trash....anyways there are some other changes. I will try to look up on storenet when I go back to work give you all a better idea

New warehouses have the space and ability to take donation boxes-hence the PPL so you would know how to.

Also, the hazardous, toxic and not enviroment friendly damaged merchandise needs to be in a seperated cointaner to be picked up and audited by "lab packer" "strong pack" " green company" whatever they call them nowadays. Adds about 30 seconds to a minutes for each item scanned as damages. So have a plan getting it done each day.

We've been doing this for about two years. It's not that bad, actually pretty quick once you get the hang of it. Items have four possible dispositions: donated food, donated non-food, trash, or lab packer (for hazardous things, although you'd be surprised what is considered hazardous - like barrettes and lots of plastic hair thingies). The lab packer items go in a heavy-duty individual ziplock bag, then in a special white box. There is also a box for donated food and non-food. If you do your damages every day or two it is quite manageable. They've actually made the process easier since it first came out. You used to have to put a label on every ziplock bag with the item name and WIC number, and write each one in a log book. THAT was a huge pain. Now, it's just in the bag and in the box (unless the UPC is not visible through the bag, in which case you need to label it).
