So this is how I decided to handle the situation. I didn't give up my identity or create a scenario where he must talk about his high level of consumption to anyone he knows, yet I still made a gesture of mutual benefit. I also may have created a scenario for which there is no legal precedent. If he enters into this agreement with me by means of written consent (or possibly by lack of written non-consent), to leave his bottles for me in his recycling bin, then who is to legally challenge me about collecting them?

I'm sure that anybody with a law or business degree could shoot this down, but my goal isn't really to be technically and legally right. It's to get bottles while being as ethical and polite about it as possible. I think I've accomplished that.

Just left the bottles on his porch with the note about 30min ago.
