In a lot of the hotel kitchens I've worked at, the folks would rather kick stuff into a floor sink, than bend over and pick it up.
Some years back, when we replaced over a 100' of 6" cast iron in a resort, we pulled out 4-5 gallon buckets of Silverware. I'm not talking stainless either. Silverware that has to be run through a burnishing/polishing machine.
And hotels and restaurants probably loose just as much if not more silverware in the garbage when the plates are scraped off. If it falls off the plate into the garbage can the serving staff / bussers do not want to get dirty and pick it out.
Not sure about the 'nice click' comment but a return trip I had to use a vacuum and magnets to finish removing the metals before i could get my 1/4"
hose through the trap. Once I made the turn it was an easy trip to the closest manhole to finish the job.
