Pop Tabs

Poptabpalooza 2020 will be held on April 24th, 2020 from 10AM to 4PM at Ronald McDonald House of Memphis.   2020 flyer and participation form available here.

That little tab that you use to open your soda or any container makes a BIG difference at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Memphis.

Collect Pop Tabs at home, work, school, church or in your community organization, then drop the tabs off at Ronald McDonald House and we'll be happy to recycle them for you. If you live out of town, you may also recycle the tabs yourself and donate the proceeds to the House. 

The Pop-Tab-Palooza promotes more community-minded children, supports children and families in need, and helps the environment at the same time.
