Unless someone grabs too many at once, the Noses WON'T fly away at random, they are essentially sealed in place...
And like that you're thinking. I guess the various "trolls" expressing their concerns about the moop potential did finally succeed in getting through. You might want to make sure these distribution barrels are clearly marked "NOT a trash can"
, or it could get a nasty mess, and wreck a lot of noses.
Maybe include a spray stencil of some sort alternating between a clown face and a clown nose, to help indicate that this barrel has a purpose that is not for trash?
Does this mean that each nose will be lose inside that barrel?
As in, you're no longer planning to package a nose with your "contact me" card into a little plastic bag?

Surely no one at BM would ever get drunk enough to start throwing handfuls around, or tip a barrel over and empty it out.

No. It's always someone else's fault. Like the consequences of a pillow fight: he who brought and made available
the down pillows is creating a "foreseeable consequence"
. Like the seed bombs
and the floating candle lanterns

Good start. Grabbing any Little Red Plastic Tumble-Weeds
before they get out on the free-range playa, or past that and into the Black Rock Desert, would be a good thing.
Apart from plant matter, feathers and the like, most moop doesn't have travel-out-into-the-desert potential like the roll-in-the-wind potential of your Little Red Plastic Tumble-Weeds

But, if it's caught at the trash fence, it's not a problem. It's the ones that get past that fence.
How far can they go? (hoping any get clogged down with playa dust, long before they reach the fence)
Off the playa and out into the Black Rock Desert?
What harm could 500, or 5,000, Little Red Plastic Tumble-Weeds
do to fauna or flora?
What can/will you do to retrieve them if they get loose past the fence onto the playa? Out into the Black Rock Desert?

Not a chance. Keep the discussion on moop, which you've repeatedly trivialized, or ignored questions or concerns, (which you do have the right to do - however wise or unwise that may be) in the open, where all concerned can participate.
But, most importantly (to me anyway), glad to see you're finally responding, and showing you're at least thinking, about the moop potential.
