The Webster Marching Band could REALLY use your returnables this year.

Due to the pandemic and the schools’ being closed, the band hasn’t been able to do any of their usual fundraisers this year.  But they’re planning to at least resurrect their bottle and can drive by turning it into a drop-off event this year.

On Saturday June 13, instead of putting your bottles and cans outside of your home, the band is asking that donations be dropped off at one of three locations, between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.:

  • Can Kings in Webster across from Eastway Wegmans,
  • Can Kings in Fairport, 1276 Fairport Rd.
  • Xerox Building 128 Parking lot off Phillips Road

If you can’t make it to any of these locations, you can call the Bottle and Can Hotline at 234-8684 (choose option 1) and someone will pick up your donations.

For more information, visit the Friends of Webster Marching Band event page on Facebook.

Webster Marching Band wants your bottles

It’s time to clean out the garage.

If you’re like me, you have a huge garbage bag or two of returnables hanging out in your garage, awaiting your motivation to take them back to Wegmans or Hegedorns. Well, the Webster Marching Band will be happy to take them off your hands.

The band’s next Bottle and Can Drive happens this Saturday June 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. All you have to do is place those bags outside your house or at the end of the driveway, with a little note indicating they’re for the band, and they’ll be whisked away for a good cause.

Or, if you plan to be out and about on Saturday, you can drop them off at the collection site, Webster Schroeder High School, 875 Ridge Road, by 4 p.m.

OR, you can call the Bottle and Can Hotline (234-8684, option 1) ANYTIME to arrange a pickup at a time convenient for you.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!

Along with the bottle and can drive, there will also be an electronics disposal event at the Schroeder parking lot from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

So while you’re gathering up all those returnables, throw some old electronics in a box and bring them along. The items accepted include desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, LCD monitors, laser printers (not ink-based) and networking equipment. Sorry, no TVs, CRT monitors or ink-based printers can be accepted.

Stay tuned for news of the Webster Marching Band’s next events, an Applebee’s pancake breakfast on July 17 and a food truck rodeo on July 21.

(Marching Band folks, you WILL be letting me know more about these, right?)
