Chenango Canal Can-Do Project: If you would like to contribute to a public rural walking trail, consider dropping off your returnables at these two locations, CazCans on Route 12B, Hamilton and Nickel-Back Redemption on Route 12, Waterville.  Both accept returnable cans and bottles for the benefit of the Chenango Canal Association and the Towpath Trail.
A group of large blue barrels located at the Canal Cottage Museum parking lot in Bouckville are also available to leave returnables. The CCA places the blue barrels on the fields along Route 20 during the Bouckville-Madison Antique Show in August.
The CCA raises money year-round to help pay expenses to maintain and improve the five-mile summit level of the Chenango Canal Towpath Trail as well as create events open to the public. We volunteer and we appreciate your help!
