"14 bags of bottles and cans, worth approximately $490" At 5 cents per bottle or can $490.00 means 9,800 botles or cans. Divided by 14 that means 700 per bag. I don't think so. Stack up 29.16 24-can cases of empties and tell me that would fit in one bag. Maybe the East Haddam Boy Scouts are ramping up for an insurance claim.

...I spoke with one of the committee officials, as well as the scout leader. They confirmed that, after the bottles and cans have been carefully sorted and bagged, (involving hours of work by many people) each 50-gallon bag will hold approximately $35.00 worth of returns. There is no insurance policy or claim involved, as it wouldn't be cost-effective. Just prior to this theft, the Boy Scouts, Troop 22, had made a $500 donation to the East Haddam Food Bank, from their "operations fund". The money collected from returning these bottles and cans was intended to reimburse this account. Any and all donations of returnable bottles and cans are always appreciated, and can be dropped off at the East Haddam Transfer Station. If anyone would like to send in a monetary donation, you can mail a check made payable to: Troop 22, PO Box 697, Moodus, CT. 06469. If you have questions or would like any information on the troop, or would be interested in becoming a scout, you may contact Scoutmaster Tony D'Addeo at 860-873-1872.

"each 50-gallon bag will hold approximately $35.00 worth of returns." So at five cents per bottle or can that's 700 bottles and cans per 50 gallon bag, or thirty-five bottles or cans to the gallon. Want to try putting thiry-five empty12 ounce Coca Cola cans in a one gallon milk jug?

Each bag measures 35x52 inches. When filled completely the redemption company will give the scouts $35 per bag of cans. Bags with plastic bottles less than half of that.
