Coventry Recycling of Waste (CROW) is urging city residents to take a trip to their local can bank to help boost the charity's income.
"We'd really like to thank the public who are continuing to use Coventry's can banks and we'd like to ask everyone to make use of their local can bank because it will benefit a Coventry charity."
These days, practically every supermarket car park contains recycling banks, and indeed, as I set off to recycle a load of bottles, jars and cans this week, I duly found bottle banks and waste-paper banks - but no can bank
- in Safeway's small car park just off the High Street.
