Anybody else used to look for old used soda bottles and cash them in for cash? I think you got 2 cents a bottle?

One of the worst things that took place was getting rid of non returnables.Think it may have happened in 70s. Prior to that you could come up with with quick change for gas for your car to get you somewhere. You also didn't deal with broken glass on sidewalks and roads.Now we deal with trash every where and I think it's embarrassing for us as a country to have it on display. Ohio is one of the worst displays.

Yes, I remember cashing in bottles to go to the movies (drive-in) What a kick, as I look back on it. The early re-cycling process had us all getting extra cash for movies, records, gas, etc...as luv said, now not so much.

Okay, so they're not soda bottles. But I clearly remember the days when my Dad would buy a case of bottle beer (Stroh's) at a carry out in Trotwood. I don't recall if there was a deposit or not. But I do remember that he kept the empties and took them back, along with the heavy cardboard case, when he would get another one. The last time he bought a case like that was for my brother's high school graduation party in 1973. That case of empties never made it back to the carry out and sat in out garage for the longest time. Don't know what ever happened to them. But you don't even have to do that that now when buy beer in bottles.
