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.  

School Pop Tab Contest:

Our 2018-2019 Schools Pop Tab Contest is now closed. See below for the list of winners by county. Thank you to all our participating schools. The  2019-2020 School Contest will begin in Fall 2019, so check back for updates!

Do I have to be associated with a school to collect pop tabs?

No. We have many workplaces, churches, and civic organizations who collect pop tabs. We'd love to have you and your group participate, too!

Here's how easy it is to make a difference in the lives of the families who turn to the Ronald McDonald House program during a child's medical crisis:

  1. Pop off those tabs from your beverage and soda cans.
  2. Save them in any container.
  3. Bring them to the House at 2201 Alden Road, the House at 1630 Kuhl Avenue, or the House at 13551 Nemours Parkway in Orlando.
  4. From there, we will take the tabs to a recycling center to be weighed in exchange for funds.
