As part of our year-round fundraising program, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Houston/Galveston, Inc. works with a local recycling center to receive money for collecting tabs from aluminum cans - including those from soda cans, vegetable and soup cans, and pet food cans.
It's easy, free, and you help a great charity! Whether you are a business, a school, a scout troop, or an individual wanting to make a difference, you can collect pop tabs.
You can drop-off pop tabs at your local Houston or Galveston area McDonald's restaurants. Tell them it is for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Houston/Galveston, Inc. and you will receive a free 16 oz. product as a thank you for your support.
Well, it's cleaner and easier to collect. Actually the pop tab is made entirely of aluminum whereas the can is a combination of various metal. So you get more from the pop tab than the can itself.
Donated pop tabs are taken to C&D Scrap Metal, where they are weighed to determine their value (values vary). The recycling center then sends us a check for the value of the pop tabs. RMHC uses the pop tab proceeds to fund our programs.
