Guy I went to college with, we'll call him Bob, came to school a bit late, because he had done a few years of prison. Big boy prison, for an attempted robbery, when he was younger. He got time off for good behavior, and had shown signs that he had rehabilitated, and Maine kind of needed the bed space for a surge of drug arrests across the state, and not for weed. Bob had very little filter, he was trying very hard, but he still had some prison related habits, and our dorm was trying hard to see that he stayed in school.

Bob got arrested one night. Six milk crates. At the time, that was a minimum of 30 days per milk crate, or a $250 fine, each. Having done actual time, he chose county lock up, because he didn't have money to pay the fine. The judge realized the small flaw in the law as written, but had to give him the time.

We brought Bob notes for his classes, made sure he had all his books, and made sure his professors understood that he wasn't simply skipping. After a week of feeding Bob--county was fairly small, and literally every meal was bought in town--they realized that they weren't really going to get to him, so they declared time served and get the hell out of here, and don't be seen carrying off milk crates again.

Bob's brothers busted his chops a lot for that.

Milk crates?  Empty milk crates?

Or full milk crates? Milk crates full of... milk?

I'm so confused.

Milk crates in college are...well, they've been a staple of student chic for a long while now.

Yea, I'm well aware of that, I just wanted to make sure I understood the context because 30-days jail time for a plastic milk crate seems... harsh, to put it mildly.  I mean, if they caught you, presumably you still have the crates and can be compelled to return them and add a few hours of community service per crate seems far more reasonable considering the 'seriousness' of the offense.

Maine was getting serious, because the dairy companies were losing a LOT of crates in the late eighties and early nineties.

In my college days, the decor was a choice of milk crates, or cinder block and 2x8 shelving. The latter required actually buying supplies, or raiding a construction site, which none of us wanted to chance. So it was milk crates because every grocery store had stacks of them out back, just for the picking. And no cameras in those days. We always got a kick out of the crates stamped "ABC Dairy - possession of this crate is a crime." And, crates were perfect for storing/hauling record albums, which most of us had an abundance of.

Stephen King tells a story about being a broke drunk undergraduate who was out driving his rattletrap beater of a car when he ran over a traffic cone which damaged said beater. Being drunk, he decided to collect up every traffic cone he could find and dump them in front of city hall or something. He collected a bunch, and then got pulled over by a state trooper. It was either pay the ~$200 fine or go to jail for a month. He didn't have the money, but then a check arrived in the mail, some low-rent men's magazine had bought one of his stories, just enough to pay off the fine. He decided it was a clear enough sign from God, and he studiously avoided traffic cones thereafter.

Laugh all you want.

But if you go to the Oregonian newspaper site, and dig through the archives.

You will see a Young Slam sitting behind Gov McCall, as he announces the Bottle Bill.

I have the mop top haircut, horn rim glasses, and am wearing a suit jacket.

Carried a stick, just to brush back the females.

Don't live in Orygun, but i still save cans for family.

Beats having to give them money.

EBN-OZN: Milk crates?  Empty milk crates?


The bastards here in Canada (Alberta, specifically) changed the sizes so that we couldn't put an album in them anymore.

Most of them now only have 2 or 3 sides and much larger holes in the bottom to make them less useful for other purposes.

The things are quite expensive. I seem to remember they were about $60 each because they use reinforced plastic and are quite strong.  The things will hold milk and when properly stacked on a pallet you can put several other pallets of milk on top.  The 12 at the bottom can end up holding several tons of milk.

Fights over cans are common where I work in downtown Portland. Three trash bags full of cans will net you up to $35 a day at a Bottle Deposit location. Most convenience stores accepted them pre-COVID, too.

That can be a lot of money if you are on the streets.

They lay the smackdown on people who steal milk crates because it happens so goddam often.  It really costs dairies a lot of money.

But they also bend over backwards to try to avoid the mess of pressing charges...just don't push back one bit.

Came here for this. And for someone who fed over 500 cans into a recycle machine yesterday for my daughter, my lats are not getting a kick.

In fact, they hurt like hell today.

My kid ended up with $110 of sweet lockdown cash. And she earned it the hard way - one dime at a time.
