Nickel Back can redemption center opens

OSKALOOSA —

 If you have a big pile of pop cans in your home, you can redeem them at Nickel Back redemption center in Oskaloosa.

Dave and Karen Neumann, of Pella, opened Nickel Back Monday at the site of Indian Can Kountry, 303 Rock Island Ave.

“We were really, really busy yesterday,” Dave Neumann said Thursday morning. “Since (Indian Can Kountry) was shutdown, people have been hoarding their cans.”

Nickel Back is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The redemption center also is open on the first and third Saturdays of the month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Dave said there is no limit to the number of cans or bottles people can bring in. He said the redemption center will accept anything with a nickel deposit.

Besides Dave and Karen Neumann, Nickel Back has one other employee.

“We'll add more employees down the road,” he said.

Dave said the goal is to keep the doors open to the redemption center longer than they have been in the past.
