Who lost their bottle?

Whilst working to clear the spoil with the dumper I’d hired I thought I’d have a go at finding the actual ground level in a part of a barn that had partially collapsed many years ago and just been abandoned. I wasn’t surprised to find that it had been used as a bit of a rubbish dump, but I didn’t expect to find the place stuffed with bottles. Mostly milk bottles, and generally unbroken. This is about half of the ones I pulled out. I wonder if there’s a deposit on the empties?

I’m aware that empty bottles were sometimes used as insulation under floors, but in this case I think they’d just been dumped there as they didn’t seem to form any coherent kind of layer. Seems quite odd that there should be so many however.
