tomra bottle machines

i work at a grocery store where we use the tomra bottle machines. i have full access to all of them and they are respectably out of sight from cameras and people. its not uncommon for employees to be fiddling with the internals of the machine (trying to unjam some stuff, etc... ) anyways, i found an old thread on here but it was pretty much a cliffhanger so im pretty much trying to bring it back alive because i do think there is some potential here. i have full access and can do pretty much anything without coming off as strange or fishy, and cameras arent really a problem.

ideas/questions/suggestions, ill try it and get back to you.

for those wondering how our current machines work..

you put the bottle in and it goes into kind of a "holder", here a scanner scans the barcode and determines if it is a valid store product and (im assuming some sort of weight/length measurement as well) then it goes into the bin and gets shredded, if it fails, it just turns the other way into a return slot.

im assuming you can just copy a regular barcode and place it on non-compatible bottles but this is signifcantly more time consuming than it sounds...

What would you want to do? Other then steal from your employer.
