I understand that plastic bottles are now being recycled on the island. I would appreciate if someone would clarify for me which ones. (i.e. small water, large water, coke light, etc.) Thanks,

only the large soda bottles, and I'm not sure that the machine that was purchased to "chip" them is in use...

We take all our plastic and glass bottles (even those with no return value) to Dona Julia who lives in the alley marked by the Ocean Essence Spa by Banyan Bay. Recycling is how she makes a living.

Me too. We won't be there til later this year, but I would love to take our bottles to her, both to help her and to keep them out of the trash. I'm an avid recycler here in the US.

Ana - will they/would they collect? I often see people on a Mexican trikes with bages of plastic bottles, perhaps it's them, perhaps it could be them! I would happily put seperate bins in our Vacation Rental for plastics - as would many other hotels etc.

We were at the bottling warehouse yesterday and clarified with them that they take back only the 5-gallon water jugs, but no other size water bottles. They did take back our small Coke Lite bottles, too.

I was informed (and very odd) that any plastic bottle containing a US branded product (Coke, Fanta, etc) could be recycled.
