I don't pay anything. I just take a late night walk a few blocks from my house on recycling night. Came back with 55 on my last haul.
No cops called, yet!
Sad to say my recycler rejects glass from my recycling bin so I just end up throwing a lot of bottles away.
Zero - I keg.
My wife bought me a dozen pint flip top bottles last Christmas for $18, but I still haven't used them yet. My growlers do the job for short term transport!
$10 for box of 12 growlers from my LHBS here in R.I. I've been accumulating a ton of 12s though so I don't think I'll be buying any 22s for awhile. Need to clear out the garage and get em filled with beer and into the cellar.
I live in a college town. Go K STATE, anyhow i get em all free
