The failure to utilize the participant tracking sheets to collect contact information from participants when the program materials were distributed is certainly an area of improvement for this pilot project. Compiling participant contact information would have enabled communication with participants and increased data gathering over the course of the pilot period. Anyone attempting to replicate this pilot project should ensure tracking of participants is included in the scope of work.
Some of the residential drop-off locations ran out of buckets to provide participants. Although each drop-off location was provided an adequate number of buckets, program implementers did not account for the amount of interest in the program, and also buckets were given out to participants without collecting contact information from them.
