Last year almost 3,000 pounds of pop tabs were collected. Georgia Scale generously donates a bench scale each year to weigh the pop tabs brought in by each school, business and individual. Everyone loves to hear the rush of the tabs as they are poured into the drums to be weighed. The tabs are recycled and the funds are used for House operations to help fulfill the needs of the families served. Pop tabs are turned into Ronald McDonald House to be recycled throughout the year, but many people save them up for Pop Tab Pandemonium.
