Pop Tabs

Pull Together Pop Tabs

Since 2000, recycling the little aluminum tabs from soda cans has generated nearly $400,000 for our Ronald McDonald House®. We are so grateful to our community partners for making this program possible. Here’s how to start your own pop tab collection:

  1. Place a collection container in a central location at home, work or school. Pop tab collection houses are available for pick up at our Ronald McDonald House (we suggest a donation of 50 cents per small house and $3 per large house). You can also be creative with your containers – try an ice cream bucket, large pretzel bin or other wide-mouthed container. Please refrain from using milk and water jugs, as the tabs are difficult to remove from them. Make your own container labels or use our official Pop Tab collection labels.
  2. When your collection container is full, you have several options:
    1. Attend Tab Toss Day.
    2. Drop off your tabs at any Complete Recycling Services, Great Clips or First Federal Bank location in the Greater Milwaukee Area, the Appleton Police Department, the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department or Schreiber Foods in Green Bay.
    3. Drop your tabs off at the Ronald McDonald House on Watertown Plank Road, any day between 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
    4. Take the pop tabs to your local recycling center and have the check made out to Ronald McDonald House Charities and mail it to 8948 Watertown Plank Road, Milwaukee, WI 53226.

Girl Scout & Boy Scout Patch Program

Even the youngest daisy and cub scout troop members can make the world a better place. Please collect pop tabs and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House. It’s easy and clean – unlike empty cans, they don’t need to be rinsed.
