Throughout the concert season at Batavia Downs, basketball players at Elba High School volunteered their time after the shows to help with clean up, gathering recyclable bottles and cans.
Ryan Tenney, owner of McNickel's Redemption, on Ellicott Street, Batavia, collected the bottles and cans for redemption.
Today, he handed a $1,700 check to the Elba Sports Boosters.
Heather Dillion, not pictured, organized the bottle and can drive.
