How you can help collect can tabs
It's easy, fun and for a great cause!
Collect can tabs all year from family, friends, neighbors and work.
Collecting can tabs is easy. Getting people to remember to save their tabs is hard. So we'll try and make that easy for you too.
We found that plastic baggies or plastic bowls work well. If you are collecting tabs in a high traffic area, then possibily even a pail would work well. Make sure to drop a few of your own can tabs in the container to "prime the pump".
Monitor your tab collection center(s) regularly. When your container is half full, off-load your stash to a home container for safe keeping. You don't want people thinking you have collected enough - as we can never collect enough can tabs for the kids.

Thanks for helping us to help the kids.
Shriners Hospitals for Children in Springfield and Boston have been collecting pull-tabs or “pop-tops” from beverage cans since 1989, recycling them, and putting the money toward programs that directly benefit children. Since its inception, about a half-million pounds of aluminum tabs have been collected and recycled.
