    My point, exactly!

    I like that the Grolsch bottles hold 15 ounces instead of just 12 like normal bottles. And I can afford new bottles, it's just that I'm not going to use these for photos anymore, because I need more volume for my film tanks, so unless I can repurpose them, I'm just going to throw them away, which seems like a waste of bottles and I could just add them to my bottle pool.
    f/22 and be there.

    It IS a waste to throw them away! You should recycle them instead.

    Put film strength fixer in them, and then dilute it 1 + 1 for print use.

    Ya beat me to the punch!

    Better yet, fill them with spent fixer, label them, and drop the whole kit 'n' kaboodle off at a local hazardous waste disposal facility (so they can pour the fixer into the river and sell the bottles back to Grolsch ).

    But you do know where to find new gaskets for the Grolsch lids?

    It not a great practice to put fixer in bottles or containers generally recognized as being normally used for food or drink. Imagine if a friend or relative who might be house sitting for you found them and in a drunken stupor perhaps took a big swig of fixer....stranger things have happened.

    Recycle the glass and wire. The ceramic stopper makes a pretty good roach clip.
