Collect & Recycle Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald Pop Tabs Collection and Recycling

Across the Chicagoland area, hundreds of individuals, schools and companies are working together to collect pop tabs to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana.


Those pop tabs are then recycled by our recycling partner, United Scrap Metal, and we receive the market value of the recycled metal, plus a charitable match from United Scrap.


Last year RMHC-CNI raised more than $40,000 from this program.
