POP Tabs for RMHC CHARLESTON

Even the LITTLE things make a BIG difference!

HOW DO THE POP TABS HELP RMHC CHARLESTON?

The tab of an aluminum can is pure aluminum unlike the rest of the can, which contains paint and other residue. Once our pop tab dumpster is full, we take the pop tabs to a local aluminum recycler. According to the price of aluminum at that time and the weight of our tabs, the recycling center gives us a check. The price of aluminum fluctuates anywhere between 35 to 85 cents a pound. This money is used for our general operating expenses meaning it truly helps in keeping our doors open to continue to serve more than 900 families annually.

While the whole can is valuable as a recyclable, RMHC Charleston does not have the storage capacity to collect the whole can. The aluminum tabs are smaller and easier to handle; they are much easier to handle when large volumes are delivered.

Pop off your tops & bring them to church (look for the gray bin with the pop tops inside a teddy bear container) & we will collect them to give to the Ronald McDonald House Charities in Charleston
