You don't need a law to get done, plenty schools have it already.
Which schools have live tracking for parents?

After a Jay's driver saw my third grade son running for the bus, stopped for him, opened the bus door, and then closed it and drove off to teach him a lesson that he has to get there early and not wait for the last minute; I would love it if the schools would demand this from the bus companies, since I have no confidence in them aiming to please.

Anyone have any leads where I can find an in house babysitter, for during the day.
For one day, or long term?
Not necessarily. Many times they have a volume promo, which only a brokerage would be able to take advantage of.
Right, thatís why itís like a wholesaler. Odds are you wonít be able to get them to talk to you, unless youíre doing enough volume/size on your own

There are all sorts of fees from which they can make their margin. Some may or may not negotiate it with you and some may or may not be more or less than others.
They do and then the bank charges you.
Ok, so how do I get visibility into the process so I can properly price this out? I called a couple of brokers, they seemed very evasive about pricing, and I got the feeling that they are used to clueless customers who they can take to the cleaners..

Are there any brokers that are transparent?

Would garbage trucks take cans that are raised up a couple of inches off the ground? I want to build a little dolly/cart so I can take all the cans out at once.

No reason they shouldn't.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

They need space between the cans.
Also, don't expect them to drop the cans back in your cart

I highly doubt it. If its an automated truck, they need a lot of space between the cans.

If it's manual, good luck getting them to take your cans off of a cart/dolly.

Why don't you take it off yourself once it's at the curb?

I keep my garbage cans on the curb because thereís nowhere on the street to properly put it, they take it every time

Good point

Good idea, would you commercialize this? PM me if youíre interested in selling them

It will take up the same amount of room with or without the cart. It will just take up more room next to the house.

I guess I could do that just slightly more work.
Good idea, would you commercialize this? PM me if youíre interested in selling them
Once I can get it to be like a roomba then it would be patent worthy. But I'd technically be in to commercialize it depending on what that entails.
