Pull Tab Collection

Did you know that the little insignificant tab you pull to open your can of soda could make a significant impact on fundraising?

The aluminum can is valuable, but this small metal tab is like a gold nugget to the Ronald McDonald House!  It is easily removed from the can and for its manageable size still delivers a positive donation benefit.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Georgia has an on-going Pull Tab Program where individuals, groups and schools collect the pull tabs from aluminum cans and turn them in for recycling.  We have a wonderful business relationship with SanJab Recycling LLC, which has agreed to be our scrap metal dealer and record all aluminum brought in by schools and groups and to pay top dollar at month's end to our Ronald McDonald House!

Our goal for this program is to raise money for utility bills each month at the Ronald McDonald House. With a House as large as ours, we appreciate participation from everyone – from individuals to businesses, your willingness to pitch in and start collecting pull tabs makes a difference!
