Does anyone know the average price per pound for can tabs?

In our area the best price is around $0.60 per pound, but that is if it is pure aluminum. If the rivet is steel, the price goes down drastically. I expect it would take a lot of pull tabs to equal a pound. Pop cans are usually a lot easier to collect, and get to a pound faster.

Well, they are aluminum and I would call a scrap metal dealer and get the price of aluminum first and then ask he would be interested in buying the tabs. You can find scrap metal dealers in the yellow pages under scrap metals.

I don't know but I collect the tabs & send them to MacDonalds. The money they get for the tabs goes towards Children's Hospital & provide assistance to parents to be with the ill children!
