Another thing you can do is call bars and restaurants in your area to see if they recycle bottles. We keep ours in bins in back and might have a few hundred before they get picked up for recycling

Remember as you are collecting bottles - you want the ones that require a bottle opener to open. NOT the twist off caps. Those you won't be able to re-cap.

You can re cap twist offs with most bench cappers.

I'm slowly drinking my way through a bunch of specialty beers I bought in brown bottles with pop tops

I've got about 25 now

I have like 50 green bottles : \

I use some green bottles as well, doesn't stop me from drinking them.

Hand held cappers won't work on twisties but a bench capper will...but you have a greater chance of a dud. I've been quite successful...until you try to twist off a pop top when you are half cut.

I don't think I have a bench capper.

I think mine is hand held, though on the picture on the front it does show a twist off bottle, and a bunch of pop tops...

That's not a bench capper. I have one the same as yours, I use twist cap bottles though, I haven't had a problem!
