There’s a new business in the Albany area that should make returning your empty cans and bottles a little more convenient. It’s called ‘For Your Canvenience’.

In a story that I read in the Times Union, a friend of Richie Phillips, myself and a few of us at WGNA, Richard Thayer had his grand opening this past Friday. As a matter of fact, Richie sings the jingle for the website, which plays when you click on the link for the website. ‘Canvenience’ will make it more convenient especially for the elderly, disabled and moms with infants, by having someone come out and pick up the empties from their vehicles. He’s also planning to have a pick-up service for nonprofit organizations and their fund drives.

‘For Your Canvenience’ is in Latham, at 462 Troy Schenectady Road, just east of exit 6 of the Northway and the Latham Circle. I’d like to wish my friend Rich the best with his new business endeavor.
