Central Iowa Shelter and Services taking can, bottle donations for a cause

They've collected about 100,000 cans and bottles so far.

DES MOINES, Iowa — With redemption centers across the state closed down due to COVID-19, it can be easy to just let the cans and bottles pile up.  But if you've got a bunch of them lying around, Central Iowa Shelter and Services will take them off your hands, and for a good cause.

All the money received from the cans and bottles go straight toward the shelter.  So far, they've collected about 100,000 cans and bottles to redeem. At five cents a pop, that's about $5,000.'
