No use for pocket full of small coins

I recently conducted a casual check at groceries, supermarkets, restaurants and money exchange centres to gauge views on small coins. And I found that none of them are interested in the smaller denomination coins, especially 25-fil coins.
In fact, these small pieces of metal are not even accepted in the parking machines or the bus coin-drop boxes.
Relevant authorities should do something to reduce this imbalance, and machines and drop boxes should be modified to accept smaller denomination coins.
