    To counter industrial espionage, all calculations relating to guinness production have to be written on rice paper and eaten after use!

      That’s what I thought at first, but it’s not the answer. They don’t use these bins for mathematical formula-ridden recipe sheets or anything like that.

    Are they afraid of you disposing of your secret stash of meths bottles in there? (And why would you need to be a meths drinker in a brewery???)

    They were worried about people disposing of used filter sheets in the bins that might look like mats to a civilian. The sign was written by someone who doesn’t make a distinction in pronunciation between ‘mats’ and ‘maths’.
