What different collection slot types are there?
There are three different types of collection slots you can claim: ongoing, temporary and one-off collection slots. As the names suggest, 'ongoing' slots have a start date and no end date. The might happen daily, once a week, once every two weeks, or once a month. If you claim an 'ongoing' slot, collections will happen until you step down, or if the business stops working with OLIO on your collection day/time. 'Temporary' collection slots are the same as 'ongoing' ones, just that 'temporary' slots have an end date. It is clear that this slot will end at some point in the future. This could be because a fellow Food Waste Hero has offered up their slot on a temporary basis, for example, because they're away and hope for someone, like you, to cover for them temporarily. Lastly, 'one-off' collection slots happen only once. They have an end date, just like 'temporary' slots, but they only happen once. This could either be because a fellow Food Waste Hero has skipped or paused one of their slots, or the collection could be from an event that only happens once.
