One of the largest fundraisers for the River City Habitat for Humanity is the aluminum can recycling program, in which can cottages are placed at designated areas for the purpose of recycling aluminum cans.

Rayma Grohs, volunteer and co-chair for the aluminum can recycling program, said the can cottage in California is a result of the program expanding the area in which can cottages are placed. Currently can cottages for River City Habitat are located in Cole County, Callaway County and now Moniteau County.
