Cans and bottles have become a norm to society. They are a part of our every day life. Beer can be found in either bottle or can form. Soda is found in a can as well, but can sometimes be found in a bottle also. It is now possible to find water that is served in a can too.
After drinking a bottle or can, there is still value to either and society has learned to take full advantage of that. When finishing a bottle or can you can take your empty remains and return them for cash.
Money is usually the incentive when it comes to returning bottles and cans, but what people decide to do with the money is entirely up to them.
Some may decided to spend the money on gas or a car wash, while others may go and grab a bite to eat. Whatever the case may be, the decision is yours.
