WHERE WE OPERATE
Our Rochester-area partners are offered an opportunity for year-round advertisement at most festivals, and city-wide events as well the Nazareth College Campus.
Syracuse-based businesses are provided advertising opportunities at various area festivals events from April through November.
S4S has a plan to expand along I-90 from Buffalo to Albany, and eventually as far as Boston, MA in the next few years. Every contribution gets us closer to helping our heroes in each of these cities.

HOW YOU CAN HELP
PARTNER WITH US
Your annual contribution will earn you a branded recycling bin to collect your organization's cans & bottles. It will be displayed throughout your city at various locations and events.
DONATE YOUR CANS
It's simple. Just collect your returnable cans and bottles at your home or office, bag them up, and get in touch with us to pick them up. We'll do the rest!
Join us on location to help with bottle and can pick-ups and recycler drop-offs.
