  1. In most cases recycling a glass bottle is simply stupid, it’s much easier to simply reuse them.
    Why would you go thought the trouble of “undoing” a bottle to simply make the SAME bottle again when you can just reuse them the way they are? Wash them and they’re good to go.

  2. Pedro, I would like to say that it was common practice in the Soviet Union. Along with collecting a wastepaper. The wastepaper were exchanged for valuable books. Currently nobody doing this.
