Pull Tab FAQ
Where can I get a tab collection box?
Any container can be used to collect pull tabs. RMHC Dayton has a a small number of collection boxes available for those interested. We do ask for a donation to cover the cost of production. If you need more than a few boxes for a school or community project, please reach out to Erika Ward via email for bulk orders.
Where do I bring my tabs?
You can bring them to the Ronald McDonald House at 555 Valley Street, Dayton, OH 45404 between 9 am-9 pm or place them in the pull tab house outside. Should you like a tour of our House when you drop off your donations, please call (937) 224-0047 prior to your visit.
Every Spring, we host a pull tab weighing contest and family-friendly event at 2nd Street Market, Tab-a-PULL-ooza.
Or recycle them and send the proceeds to us. We recommend:
First Street Recycling
1321 E. First St. Dayton, Ohio 45403
Why do you only collect the tab?
Tabs are more sanitary and easier to store than whole cans in our limited space.
How much do you receive for the tabs?
After the tabs are collected, our local recycler picks up the tabs and brings them to their processing facility, where they are weighed to determine their value (values can vary significantly). The recycling center then sends us a check for the total value. Annually, the revenue generated from tabs collected throughout the year generate approximately $16,000 for RMHC Dayton.
Tab-a-PULL-Ooza 2021 resulted in 1,260 pounds being collected. The total value raised from that one-day event was $630.
