where did you purchase the 'pour away' liquid containers and what was the rough cost?
Alice Smith
53:48
How does one address the custodial staff, since they work for the school administration? not sure if they have union contracts?
Alice Smith
54:37
If they have explicit ways of doing things, under contract, how does the community ask them to do something new??
Melissa Telford

AT our school, I have found that kids are not given the opportunity to wash their plastics during the school day, and thus, they get thrown out or potentially contaminate the bins. Ideas.... does the school need to invest in a sink in the cafeteria... classrooms...?
Joe DeRisi

Any of your school compost on site or have compost picked up ? How does the school curriculum interface , if it does, with the actual recycling ?
Alice Smith
57:37
CJ, do you charge for your magic services? To come to schools and educate our youth, administrators, parents?
Alice Smith

Do schools have to purchase special bins for compost materials?

Is there grant money for schools if they wanted to add a sink to their cafeteria for students to rinse plastics and reduce plastic trash?
CJ MAY
01:15:19
Actually the kid-focused magic is www.cyrilthesorcerer.com, not "sourcerer"!
