Pop Can Tabs Collection Program
March of Dimes Canada collects aluminum pop tabs year-round, and the recycling of these tabs generates revenue that benefit our Assistive Devices Program that helps buy, repair and maintain a wide variety of mobility or assistive equipment (including wheelchairs), and DesignAbility® program that modifies and custom builds products to increase independence that cannot be found on the market.
What is a Pop Tab?
A Pop Tab is the piece of metal that opens aluminum cans. Like the can, the Pop Tab is recyclable. It is a small piece, yet a refundable piece.
Why Collect Pop Tabs?
Pop Tabs are an easy way to recycle and help others. It is a task that people of all ages can do.
Why only Pop Tabs instead of the whole can? Well, the tabs are made of different quality aluminum than the cans and may be more easily recycled. They are smaller and cleaner than collecting cans. They are also easier for the Charities to handle when receiving large volumes. The amount of money received is determined by the weight of aluminum collected. These pop tabs can make a big impact when collected in numbers.
How to Turn in Pop Tabs
Unfortunately WE are UNABLE to Pick Up pop tabs. You may drop off your Pop Tabs at the March of Dimes Canada National Office at 10 Overlea Blvd. in Toronto, during business hours 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
