Not enough recycling bins in school buildings/classrooms - at least put one on every floor

ii.

People like the Dutch slushies

M. Senator MacCarthy - In the towers the heat is either off or low (or medium or high) but it is so hot very quick even on low and to turn it on at night or when out for the day makes it too hot or to turn it off makes it too cold i. N.

If the heat is left on but with window left open a bit, it’s bad for the environment - need some way to better control this
