North Collins High School students plan to collect returnable bottles and cans to benefit the Marine Biology Club and senior class.

School district residents may place bottles or cans worth 5 or 10 cents in a bag marked “MBC” for marine biology club near their front door or on the curb before 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

Students expect to collect them until 1:30 p.m. They ask residents not to leave them out overnight because someone else may take them.

Residents may also deliver them to the high school before 1:30 p.m. Saturday or Eden Recycling on Main Street in the Town of Eden before or after the collection day.

Those who take them to the recycling center should mention they are donating them to the high school.

If residents have questions, they should call the high school’s office at 337-0101 ext. 304.
