Would you carry your own take-away container to a restaurant and forgo the disposable container?

I never have. It seems like a good idea though I wonder whether there are health and safety regs against it.
These days they in most cases will not let you take it home, unless a dessert!
In other words they say they are not allowed, by health regulations(meat and the such).

I would if there was a lot of food going to waste.....Can't stand waste.

I would definitely take my own container. The problem is the liability that may come with it. The is just too much unnecessary plastic waste.

My mothers a vegeterian when we go to one hotel near her place they tell her to order a cheap meat based meal that is cheaper or near the same price as the salad bar. They then give me the meat in a polystyrene container and tell me to fill it up with salads to take home for tea.
I haven't done this but then I use and reuse the "disposable containers" from restaurants so am always happy to have more! My mum carries a doggy bag with her and pops uneaten food in it to take home but once the food was still really hot and melted the bag...... so a proper container would be better if less discrete!
I would if they would accept them.

Definitely, although only if the food was really nice! However, I'd definitely be a bit discreet in packing away the leftovers.
I always have a couple of plastic bags with me. Handy for multiple uses.

I usually order food amounts which I know I can consume then & there in Restaurant.
If it could fit in my wee purse I might
