Recyclables collected Monday, April 6, 2009

  • 1 aluminum can (Diet Coke)
  • 2 plastic bottles (1 Gatorade "G", 1 Glaceau Vitamin Water)
  • 1 glass bottle (Coca-Cola Classic)

I had heard that all Coca-Cola sold in the United States came in plastic bottles or aluminum cans, with glass bottles being used only in other countries, so I can't explain the existence of the glass bottle listed above. It was buried in mud and may have been on/in the ground for a long time, but surely not for years.

My research led me to believe that Coca Cola bottlers had abandoned glass in the USA, but there could be some holdouts. A Canadian soft drink bottler that I spoke to personally couldn't reuse glass bottles because there was no longer a local washing facility. He chose to import clean used bottles from a bigger city (Montreal)anyway.
