Does anyone know if they take expired box tops anywhere? I just found a gallon sized ziploc bag full and I hate to throw them out if there's some place that can redeem them.

Your local school probably will take them. They also have a drop off box at our local Walmart

Every once in a while, they will take expireds. They have to figure out if it's a manufacturing issue, like the box tops expired too soon to reasonably use the product and get it in before the submission date. Last year they were taking bonus and regular 6/30/09's for October's submission. Of course, I didn't find out until I had thrown most of them away.

If you sort them out in packs of 50, your coordinator can try including them. They may take them, they may not. If they do, your school has gained some money. If not, they are out of your house anyway.

Oh sorry, I missed the "expired" part.
