Redeemables Collection

habitat for humanity LEED house Decorah

Redeemable cans and bottles are any carbonated or alcoholic beverage container bought in Iowa with an "IA" sticker or stamp on it.  When they are returned to a redemption center $.05 is paid for each container.  In order to get paid, the bottle must still have the stamp or sticker on it.

Interested in an easy way to help others in your community?  By donating your redeemable beverage cans and bottles, you can help Habitat for Humanity to build a house to LEED standards in Decorah!  So far we have raised $2,118.15!

Community Drop-Off Site

Details:  Place redeemable cans, plastics, and glass into tied bags and drop them off in the metal bins (next to the blue dumpsters - see map to the right). All cans and bottles must have and 'IA' sticker or stamp.

Location: Luther campus, below Facilities, off Dike Road past Farwell Hall next to Storre Theater
