Q: What happens to all of the ice cream cups? Do you recycle?
A: We do our best to make this event as green as possible. Unfortunately, we have been unable to find a vendor who is able to recycle the ice cream cups due to the liquid weight of the trash. If you know of a way this can be recycled, please contact us!

Q: Why doesn't the Scooper Bowl take place over the weekend?
A: Our ice cream vendors generously donate their time and product, and we honor their availability and needs. And, it makes for a great break from work or end of year field trip!
