    Despite of that, a lot of people use PET bottles (lemonade, soda) for storing chemicals. Including me, because those bottles are easy to get and they're flexible enough for squeezing all air off.


    I would not return these bottles for recycling, even though they're crushed and melted.


    But you never know what is kept in the glass bottles that are returned for reuse. Or what was kept on the PET bottles when they were still returned for reuse instead of crushing.
    Someone could return a bottles used for storing gasoline, rat poison or some other toxic stuff..

    Funny what some will do to try to save a few pennies and risk a problem.

    I doubt you will get sick if you get all the heavy metals outs, but more likely foul the beer you worked so hard on to perfect.

    That is the reason given here when they switched from reusable plastic milk bottles to selling Milk in bags. The bags are made from Virgin plastic and where they are recycled they are used for "other products'.

    Beer bottles are washed in a railcar sized machine called a "soaker" and at that the brewery has both machines and workers looking for cigarette buts and rodents in the fill line. I remember geting atour where the supervisor was showing a photocell that caught something in a bottle, he put the rejected bottle back on teh line and it WENT THROUGH!, he grabbed it and ran it two or three times before the photocell kicked it out for rewashing.

    I have heard of reused coke bottles with a cigar or a rodent in them. IDK how a rodent got into a bottle through the narrow opening, but the person who found it told me it was in a few pieces. Both instances were outside of the US.
