Okay, if you are a wine drinker you will end up with empty wine bottles, and you know, personally, when I end up with these I like to recycle them, but depending on where you live you may have to travel too too far to a recycling center. There are going to be fees. Strangely enough, if you want to recycle you're going to have to pay to recycle in a lot of cases, but you know, I think it's the right thing to do. The distributors don't really ever ask for these bottles back if you're a bar or a business like they do with beer bottles, so you will not get any credits for them or anything like that. Unfortunately, what most people do with them is they just throw them out, but if you wanted to you could hold onto these and make your own wine to put in them. And of course, you'd have to buy corks and whatnot, but that's a very common practice. It's a lot more popular than you might think.
