      • Aluminum cans may be recycled through Stanko Products Inc. on Donahue Road in Greensburg. Take your cans around to the far side of the building and go in the second metal door. Your cans will be weighed. Be sure to give the band student’s name and to say that this is for the GS Band. A check will be sent to the band parents and credited to your child’s points account. The rate for aluminum varies ($0.35/pound as of July 2019). Cans are accepted Monday through Friday between 8am and 4pm (they are at lunch from 12 to 12:30).
