Pop Tab Program

Pop Tab Program

Little things can make a big difference. You can help support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester by collecting the little tabs you pull to open soda, soup or other aluminum cans. We can then redeem the tabs for cash at Metalico, our local recycling partner. Collecting tabs is an easy and fun project that anyone can do!

How much is a pop tab worth?

The amount of money we receive when we recycle pull tabs and bottle caps is determined by the total weight of the tabs we redeem and the current redemption value. All funds raised from our recycling efforts support the children and families served by RMHCR.

Why collect pop tabs?

Collecting pull tabs and metal bottle caps makes it easy to recycle and help RMHCR at the same time. We work with a local recycler to redeem pull tabs for money that helps us provide services for families with seriously ill or injured children. You can collect pull tabs on your own at home, or collect them with a group at school, at work, or anywhere else you can think of!

Create a Collection Container

Turn any clean, empty container into a pop tab collection container and let the world know that you are collecting for the Ronald McDonald House! Print out our pre-made flyer to let your friends and family know to collect pop tabs.
