Wow, have never heard of eggs being used as fertilizer. It was probably just the best way to dispose of it, don't know what the nutrient content would be.

Hatchery waste is a common organic ingredient of compost. I haul wood chips to several compost manufacturing companies…unhatched eggs in a semi-liquid state are delivered daily. And yes it indeed stinks… and the odor is “sticky”.

A couple weeks ago I delivered a load of Wing Seasoning, some sort of spice mixture I believe. 18 pallets weighing right at 40K. Each pallet had, I'm guessing, 10 lb bags of the stuff all plastic wrapped. When they were done they came up and said that they were rejecting 4 of them "because of bugs". Not quite sure how they determined that the other 14 were good.

Dispatch had me take them to one of our drop lots. Next day I was back there and the trailer was already gone. No idea where they ended up.

Michael got back to Sysco with the same load this morning, 5 minutes before his 0900 appointment. Took them 6 hours and 3 minutes to unload him and now he is creeping along at 7-10 MPH in commute traffic. He was supposed to pick up another trailer in the Stockton yard and deliver it to Tracy at 1700 but that will probably be at least 2 hours late.

His longest unloading was two weeks ago at U.S. Cold Storage in Tracy that was just over 8 hours. He's been there before several times and it has never been that bad. Looking at Google reviews for the location one guy reported he was being unload for 10 minutes shy of 24 hours. Some U.S. Cold Storage locations have great reviews. I'm guessing it must just be a tighter labor market in the Tracy area where many people can commute to the Bay Area for higher paying jobs. Michael's fastest unloaded (from a reefer) was 15 minutes at some Mexican food DC in Washington. He said the guys there told them it was nothing special, they always unload fast.
