Smidge204: cgraves67: Why would the company even run the risk of reusing those containers? They should all be melted down and reformed.Assuming that's even possible with the type of plastic used (not all plastics can be recycled), they'd have to deal with the labels and caps for each bottle before they can be processed. And each time they are broken down and re-used, the quality of the plastic degrades, often significantly. It's easier and cheaper to sterilize and refill them. There's also nothing wrong with that approach 99.9% of the time... until some dipsh*t decides to return a bottle they used for holding hazardous chemicals and nobody catches it.Perhaps a simple new rule: Since there zero reason to remove the cap entirely, use that as evidence of tampering. If the cap is damaged or missing, no refund on the deposit.=Smidge=
