Amy commented, "We are here to provide a service to the community", however there are some regulations that they ask their customers to abide by. All redeemable items must have an IA .05 deposit on them; this does not include water, flavored water/juice, Gatorade, Powerade and tea or lemonade; All cans and bottles must be empty: no chewing tabacco; garbage or liquid of any kind for the safety of the owners and their employees; plastic bottles cannot be flattened or crushed; and they would perfer for glass items to be in cardboard boxes.
The business does have plans to move on Nov. 2 of this year. Their new location will be 407 1st Street, Traer (in the alley behind the grocery store, formerlly known as Traer Cabinet Building).
The Bradleys look forward to serving the community and are available for pick up of large quanities. They can be reached at 319-240-0721 or 319-269-7804.
