Thanks to schools, businesses, community organizations, and families like yours, we recycled approximately 35 million pop tabs last year, and the money from those donations helps pay for our electric bill each month.
Where do I take my tabs?
Saving pop tabs is easy. Simply remove the tab off your can, save them in a disposable container, and when you have a large amount, drop them off at our House, at 620 S. 38th Ave. Please make sure you mark your tab container with the name of your group if you are part of the Thanks A Million club.
Why pop tabs and not the entire can?
Because pop tabs are smaller and easier to store. The tabs are also paint free and pure aluminum, which increases their value and profit when recycled. So pull your tabs for Ronald McDonald House, but be sure to recycle the cans.
Here are some fun facts about tabs:
In 2000, RMHC in Omaha started the Thanks a Million Club as a way to encourage organizations, businesses, and schools to collect tabs for the House. Those who reach the 1 million mark are welcomed as members of the club, receive a certificate and recognition on social media. Many organizations decide to continue collecting tabs and try for 2 million and beyond. When they reach milestones, they receive another certificate. To join, bring your pop tabs to Ronald McDonald House and fill out a Thanks a Million form for each container of tabs you bring.
