Odd condiment question

I've offen wondered what happens to the massive quantities of unused packets of condiments and such that get taken away from restaurant tables.....I guess i assume they get tossed, but part of me hopes that places aren't that wasteful. I'm not talking about stuff on plates and such, but bowls of untouched creamers and butters, untouched seafood sauce, dressing packets or tartar sauce and the like. I don't like sweet and sour sauce or seafood sauce for certain items nor do the friends who usually share appetizers requiring this stuff, and often even when we've asked, breaded mushrooms or beer battered shrimp will come along with five or six packets of S&S or seafood sauces, to which we immediatly ask for ranch or tartar or ketchup maybe...and the waiter usually goes off with it to nothing gets touched.

What do restaurants do with this stuff?
