A new rule against walkers has some people walking right past the Emtees Redemption Center in West Haven.
The center set a new policy that prohibits people who walk, push a cart or ride a bike from exchanging cans or bottles for cash during certain hours, reports The New Haven Register.
The change is also for safety reasons tractor-trailers stop at surrounding businesses in the afternoon, he said.
Anyone who walks, pushes a cart or rides a bike can only enter Emtees between 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. After turning in the cans for cash, they have to leave immediately, a notice posted at the center says.
"You can't refuse a person admittance because they didn't come by vehicle. ... I've never heard of anything like it," he said.
