Pop Tops

Over the years our friends and supporters have collected millions of aluminum pop tops (also known as pull tabs) to support our programs. We simply recycle them for the cost of the aluminum. Download a Pop Top Program Flyer

Facts about Pop Top Donations:

  • In 2014, we made just over $5,000 from recycling pop tops.
  • For each pound of pop tops, we receive approximately 55 cents
  • There are 1,267 pop tops in a pound.
  • That means we recycled 11,517,030 pop tops.
  • You can also fill the pop top collection houses with pennies and it will add up to $12.

All pop tops can be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House any day of the week between 8:00 am and 9:00 pm. We recycle all of our pop tops with our partner, United Scrap Metals.

If you are unable to bring your pop tops to the Ronald McDonald House, you can take them to your local recycling center and mail the check you receive in exchange to RMHC of Richmond, 2330 Monument Avenue, Richmond, VA 23220.
