Pop Tab Recycling Program

Pop Tab Recycling Program for Ronald McDonald House

Pop Tab Recycling Program for Ronald McDonald House®

Did you know we collect pop tabs? It pays off in a big way, too! Each year, Ronald McDonald House® Charities of Central Illinois collects approximately 40 million tabs. That cashes out to about $10,000 for our charity!

So the next time you grab popcorn and a can of soda, remember to save the tab for us and the many families we serve. You can drop them off any time of the year at the Springfield Ronald McDonald House or the Peoria Ronald McDonald House, Monday through Sunday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
