About the Wood Nickel
Our story of the wood nickel.
The wood nickel is nothing new, they’ve been around for a long time.
The wood nickel at Pleasant View started in 2011 when the owner Dustin Whiteaker brought his daughter Amber (3 and a half years old at the time) to look at a dumpster truck. When they walked into Beam Truck and Body in Woonsocket RI, they were greeted by a great man named Rod. Rod talked to Amber for a bit and gave her a wood nickel and told her to keep it forever and that’s exactly what she’s done.
Recently, when Dustin was sitting in his office, he noticed those wood nickels that Rod had given him and his daughter. He thought it would be a great idea to incorporate the wood nickel into his appreciation for his customers, thus the Pleasant View version of the wood nickel.
Our version of the wood nickel is a small token of appreciation to all of our valued customers. If you’ve rented a dumpster from us, you’ve probably received one of our wood nickels. If you can use it, we would love to do business with you again in the future! If you don’t have a need for it, please “pay it forward” and gift it to a friend, maybe even a stranger, but please don’t discard of it.
