[greenyes] Where can I found a mountain of plastic bottles?

Hello, you guys might remember me-- I'm the photographer who is working on
images of American consumerism. I've been following this thread about
mountains of plastic bottles with interest-- a horrendous mountain of
plastic bottles is high on my photographic wish list. Can someone suggest a
place I could go and find such a mountain? Ideally it would be
pre-crushing, so that the pile would have an interesting translucent glow,
but it also could be bales of crushed plastic bottles. The key is a huge
quantity all together. If anyone can help me get access, I'd be happy to
give you free usage rights to whatever photos I take there.

I was involved on a campaign on my campus against a company getting an
excessive contract with the school partly because they have so much plastic
and financially, plastic is not very profitable for rcycling programs.

Americans are guzzling more water out of plastic bottles than ever before,
but recycling fewer -- in part because so many of the bottles are used
outside the home.
