Free Keg of Beer for soda tabs?

Is there any truth to this? Has anyone done it? Being in college me and my friends have a crapload of tabs sitting around and we've heard about this, but so far it seems to be an urban legend....any insight guys?

i have heard of it but have no proof of it being true, i do know a bunch of people that use to keep the tabs awhile back saying that they could get one though.

I doubt it's true. And if you walk into the fast and easy to ask, I'm pretty sure you'd get laughed at.

Re: Free Keg of Beer for soda tabs?

i'm still wondering how ideas like this spread across the internet. . .a keg of cheap beer is $30-$40 depending on which rot gut you're willing to drink. . .do you know how many tabs it would take to get the scrap value of roughly $35?. . .i'm not seeing this as a viable option for most people. . .but if its true somewhere, then wonders will never cease to amaze me. . .

Re: Free Keg of Beer for soda tabs?

not that many. there is more pure aluminum is a can tab than a whole can, i know a guy that has to have kidney dialysis, and they give him 10 free seconds for every coke can tab, needless to say we ALL drink cans, and about 3 months we give him at least 1/2 a gallon of tabs. i would imagine this is true, the kidney dialysis place sells the tabs to NASA, they gave him a booklet explaining how it works, but NASA pays pretty good for pure aluminum like tabs. A random Joe cant just go to NASA and sell tabs, but alot of recycling places will give u decent money for only the tabs and they sell to a 3rd party or to NASA.

Never heard of getting a keg, that would be sweet!!! People save/donate them for making wheelchairs out of them up here or people donate wheelchairs for them or something like that.

not including the the deposit on the keg itself, you can get some pretty cheap rank ass beer for $40. . .we used to do it all the time when we through alot of parties. . .one keg of natty or worse for the party goers. . .and the keg of killians hidden in the garage for us. . .

i didn't pay $110 for my last keg of newcastle. . .got it for $90 with the deposit

i thought my friends and i were the only ones to do this. minus the natty, plus keystone light kegs... and we actually had kegs of killians or yuengling hidden for the kids in our "group" haha

i actually heard of the tab thing. some of my friends have tried but never succeeded since it takes an insane amount of tabs to fill up a milk jug thing.
