A. Sometimes cutlery gets thrown into the trash by mistake. To reduce the loss of cutlery, Legal Seafood uses trash bins with magnetized linings. When the trash is dumped out, the refuse leaves the bin but cutlery often sticks to the sides, especially if it's a knife, which presents a lot of surface area to the lining of the bin. When a knife is found in the bin, it's triple-washed to get rid of bacteria, but the magnetism remains.
