Cash for Cans

Cash for Cans has seen a decrease in the cans and bottles it picks up from commercial establishments, but it's made up for that with an increase in the amount of cans and bottles being brought in for redemption by individuals.

Whether the pandemic’s to blame isn’t certain, but Joe Brekunitch said there’s been a decided upturn in over-the-counter can and bottle redemptions - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic - at Cash for Cans in Iowa Falls.

Brekunitch manages the only can and bottle redemption center in the area. It’s owned by his brother, Steve Brekunitch, who started the business in 1983. When COVID-19 hit Iowa, the brothers noticed a slow-down in business.
