Can Do open for business


It is called the Can Do, and, it is open for business now, for the redemption of bottles and cans that are redeemable for a nickel.

Located at 225 South Benton with a sign on Gateway Drive, the redemption center hours are Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, 9 A.M. to 5 P.M……….closed Sundays and Wednesdays. All major brands of cans and bottles are accepted, including Hy-Vee, Fareway, and Aldi’s, according to owner Lee Collins.

The redemption center will take up part of the slack created for Ottumwa Residents who want to redeem their cans and bottles, caused by the announced closure of the Tenco Industries can and bottle redemption, effective March 1st.
