Tips to assist Service Paws

Service Paws of Central PA collects aluminum can tabs as one of its signature fundraising efforts.

First and foremost, we want to thank everyone for their continuing support by saving these tabs. To date, we have recycled over 4,500 pounds.

As a reminder, when saving your tabs, please remember we only accept aluminum, which are tabs from beverages (soda, beer, tea, etc.).

Also, if collecting in containers, please be sure they are wide-mouth containers, easy to empty. A soda bottle is not appropriate because it is too difficult to empty.

Also, we cannot use the box tops for Education, Campbell Soup labels, etc., which we sometimes find mixed in with the tabs.

I hope these tips help guide you when saving tabs so we can continue to help others.
