It takes about 1,128 pop top tabs to make a pound, according to the Ronald McDonald House website. With the aluminum valued at nearly 50 cents a pound, the pop top program brings in nearly $6,000 a year, according to the charity.
Spinler’s collection, which weighs more than 2,000 pounds, is proudly displayed in a clear 6 foot wide, 4 feet deep and 4-foot tall box.
Now that Spinler reached his goal of 3 million pop top tabs, he will donate them to the Ronald McDonald House Charities next June, KARE reported.
"I might still keep on going as long as I'm still alive," Spinler told KTTC in 2017. "To make somebody happy was worth it."
