Skaneateles Music Boosters want your refundable containers

Hall said he would likely pick the truck up at the end of the day June 6, but that it really depends on how many cans are collected. If the boosters fill the truck before the weekend is over, the Can King just might find himself making a trip to empty it and make more room.

"I've seen as much as 40,000 cans," Hall said about can and bottle drives. "It's amazing how much you can make off something like this."

Smith said the boosters are hopeful the event will become an annual occurrence. The event will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday June 5 and Sunday June 6 at the old ice rink.

Anyone wishing to make a monetary donation to the boosters is welcome to do so. Contributions in lieu of cans or bottles can be sent to 2143 Singing Woods Drive, Skaneateles NY 13152. Make checks payable to SCS Music Boosters.

For more information about the can and bottle drive, volunteering for the event or to learn more about the SCS Music Boosters, call 391-5999.
