A&W seemed like a good enough place to try to get my first zero-waste fast food breakfast. Not only do they have the traditional breakfast sandwich combo but many other options including bacon, eggs and toast. I brought in my pie plate because it’s about the size of a dinner plate but with higher sides. The woman behind the till was very helpful. She thought my pie plate was a great idea and agreed that there is a lot of waste that comes with fast food eating. After I made my choice she brought the plate to the cooks for me. She filled my coffee but unfortunately they only have packaged creamers so I had to leave it black. When my food was ready it was sent to the front and all that needed to be added was the hashbrown. I did ask for no paper sleeve at the beginning but she tried to give it to me anyways. When reminded, she took it off and placed it in what I believe was a little garbage on the counter. Refusing the offer of a fork, knife and a couple of paper napkins was easy. It was disappointing about the hashbrown sleeve that was wasted and the black coffee. I grabbed my stuff and headed to work. Luckily I work beside a Starbucks that has cream in refillable containers so the problem of the black coffee was solved quickly. Overall this trip was successful. Next time I would refuse the hashbrown altogether to avoid the waste.
