The little tab you pull to open your soda, soup or any other aluminum can makes a significant impact on the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware. The House recycles the tabs to generate funds to offset general operating costs. By collecting the tabs you will help care for families who stay at our House each year.
This is an easy and fun project for schools, clubs, businesses or other large groups as well as individuals and families. Tabs can be dropped off at our House any day between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Last year we made over $7,100 from collecting and recycling pop tabs.
Pop tabs were invented in 1962 by Ermal Fraze of Dayton, Ohio. There are 1267 pop tabs in one pound.
We collect the tab instead of the can because there is more aluminum in just the tab than in the whole can -- and it takes up much less space! The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware receives over 17 million pop tabs a year.
