Our next Cans collection is booked for Friday 12th January, as such the last call for cans to add to that collction is Tuesday 9th Janaury.
A few months ago we were asked by the owners of the land the OTR Coop is situated on, to remove our collecting cage which we graciously did. Recently we have been 'reminded' that fans are still leaving bags of cans on the site. I accept that the Coop do not help the situation by leaving a cage in the same position as ours was but, please, please, please if you, or anybody you know, leaves bags of cans there please just walk that 150 mtrs down the road to SJP and leave them there.
Also, please can i remind everybody that it is ONLY aluminium drinks cans that we take and NOT steel food tins. The odd 1 or 2 we can get away with but, if we constantly have them in what we 'assure' ECC is pure aluminium cans then, we could, recieve less for our efforts than we do at present. Having to sort throuh 2 or 3 bags of cans to remove 10 0r 20 steel food tins takes time and dtracts from other things. A rough rule of thumb to tell the difference is to use a fridge magnet, casting your mind back to year 7/1st form physics, if the object is attracted by the magnet it is STEEL and should go into your normal local council kerbside recycling, if not then it is ALUMINIUM and can come to Cans4City.
