This initiative is good for Ronald McDonald House families, local schools, and the environment. We can all do a little to make a big difference in our community!
What is a pop tab?
Pop tabs are the little aluminum tabs from all kinds of cans: soda, some pet food, canned fruits, vegetables, and more.
How do pop tabs help the Ronald McDonald House?
Once the pop tabs are collected, they are taken to be recycled in exchange for dollars, which support the children and families we serve at our Houses.
Since 1996, the RMHCCF Pop Tabs program has collected over 80 tons of pop tabs and raised over $120,000 to benefit the children and families staying at the two Ronald McDonald House locations in Orlando.
Pop Tabs School Contest
Through our school contest, kids learn the importance of philanthropy and recycling in an easy, fun way. Join us for the 2013-2014 School Pop Tab Recycling Contest, presented by WKMG-TV/LOCAL 6 and Central Florida McDonald’s®. We invite all Central Florida schools to collect pop tabs throughout the school year. Each school that participates will take them to a local recycling center to be weighed and translated into dollars to help the children and families we serve. Many of these families come from our Central Florida community - they could even be your neighbors and friends!
If you haven’t started saving your pop tabs already, you should start now!
- Registration Deadline: Tuesday, April 1st
- Pop Tabs Weigh-In Day: Tuesday, April 8th
- Pop Tabs Media Day: Tuesday, April 22nd
