Pop Tab Patch Program

Little things can mean a lot…

Even the youngest daisy and cub scout troop members can make the world a better place.


  1. Patches are distributed ONCE PER YEAR at Tab Toss Day. If your troop is unable to attend, patches will be mailed after this event.
  2. Troops outside of Wisconsin may receive patches for their collections.
  3. For questions or assistance, please contact Megan Foley, Philanthropy Manager, at

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Register your troops for pop tab collecting! To offset the cost of patches, we charge a $1.00 per scout registration fee. 2023 patch registration is now closed. 
  2. 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.

Alternatively, you may:

  • Attend Tab Toss Day.
  • 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.
  • Drop your tabs off at the Ronald McDonald House on Watertown Plank Road, any day between 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
  • 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.
