I realize it is not a lot of money - but since installing our reverse osmosis filters we no longer need Ciel bottled water. We have 3 bottles for which we were charged. My wife tried to return them to the guy today when he pulled up to the house and he said - no we don't take those back. Any experiences ?

Cut off the tops with a knife and you have a 5 gallon/19 liter bin to store anything you want to store.

Anything I want to dispose of I put on the sidewalk the night before along with the trash on a garbage pickup day and it is gone before the truck arrives in the morning.

Are these water bottles empty or full?

Are you just trying to get rid of the bottles or get back the cost of what you had to pay for the bottle?

If you just want to get rid of the bottles, I'm sure there are plenty of Mexicans of lesser material wealth who would be happy to take them off your hands. You could probably leave them on your sidewalk with a sign saying "Gratis" and they'd be gone in a flash!

I agree with ojos azules11.
I was wondering if this was really a subject or someone was really bored

just clean them out good, put them away, never know when you might be without water and may need them, im sure your nice water system doesn't work too well with no water, and remember you live in mexico :)

And Europe has had decent public transit and a great train system for about 100 years now, why can't the US be the same? Because they are different places with different problems, that's why. The US would be doing well if they could do public transit half as well as Mexico does, let alone imitate Europe.
