The first poster is incorrect, many recycling centers do accept tabs, but you must make a phone call first, only 84% of the recyclers I have contacted accept tabs.
Do not expect a lot of money for your tabs, they are after all just scrap metal, or CLEAN ALUMINUM, and it takes 1,538 tabs to make a pound of aluminum. there is nothing special about tabs, they are actually made of the same sheet aluminum as the can. Aluminum ranges from 50 cents to 1 dollar per pound, depending where you live. http://cubmaster526.angelfire.com/ 44% 4 Votes
