Recyclables and reusables found Monday, October 13, 2008

  • 1 aluminum can (Diet Pepsi Max)
  • 6 plastic water bottles (1 Vintage, 1 Deer Park regular, 1 Deer Park Eco-Shape, 1 with no label, 2 Poland Spring Eco-Shape)

  • 1 rubber band
  • 1 twist tie

I hadn't previously seen Poland Spring Eco-Shape bottles. They look identical to Deer Park Eco-Shape bottles except for the labels, and even those are similar. It turns out that the Deer Park Spring Water Company and the Poland Spring Water Company are both divisions of Nestle Waters North America Inc. I've also seen Nestle brand water, and am now wondering just how many brands of water Nestle owns.

Monday was a public holiday, and a lot of people were out hiking or bicycling. I suspect that this is why so many water bottles were discarded that day.
