Wistaston Scout Group (35th South West Cheshire) has setup new aluminium can collection bins in Wistaston to raise money for their Group.
The new bins are located in Wistaston on the car park at Wistaston Memorial Hall (Church Lane), outside Wistonia Stores (Kings Drive), and outside the new Co-op (Crewe Road).
The Group also has aluminium can collection bins on the car park in front of the ‘Spar’ convenience store on Rope Lane, Wells Green.
Thus far the Group have collected around £8,000 worth of aluminium cans, but would like more to support their activities.

Recyclable aluminium cans will have the ‘alu’ symbol printed somewhere on them. Aluminium cans are also not magnetic.
