gone on a couple drives along smaller highways and back roads recently , most of this stuff I found at road intersections or smaller dumps I had found in past years or places I knew or suspected stuff had been dumped .

nothing really old but still found a couple neat items

found some bottles and cans the one day , not every bottle is pictured some jars and broken no deposits too .

pop bottles - Vernor's ginger ale 10 oz , Brown's Beverages - gravenhurst 10 oz , Fresca no deposit , coca cola - 10 oz , no deposit , broken hobbleskirt from 57 , some large clear no deposits , liquor bottle

lots of cans but mostly too rusted by now to keep , but took a pic so you could see what I found

brands included - Hires , Minute Maid Lime ( diet ) , pepsi , coca cola , America dry , fresca , crush , canada cry - club soda , 7 up , Schweppes - bitter lemon ? , Yukon club - kola , KIK cola , Ice Castle - tonic water , ( the Kik , Yukon club and Ice Castle were flat tops )

some more finds , found the Mountain Dew hillbilly along a busy roadway in some leaves

later on I was poking around a small roadway that leads to a lake , some small minor dumpings , mostly just rusted food cans ( no bottles )
then came across a small pile of late 80's trash , there is a date of 1989 on the mcdonalds cup ( advertises Canada's wonderland )

lots of Canada dry - cola ( 280 ml cans ) not sure what year they stopped selling that here but don't think its been around for a while

also beer cans for Amstel a brand I haven't heard of , some rusted thin metal cans for Cott's - cola and ginger ale . most were way too rusted but a couple still with colour

and 1 crush - orange ( 280 ml ) a can I haven't found yet and though had a neat look to it

also went back to a small dump near where I live that I first found in 2017 , sort of hard to dig there due to ground / hard soil and a lot of trees/branches from spruce/pine trees

wasn't finding much at first , a lot of broken stuff , rusted food cans .
found some broken sodas - Kist , Coca Cola , Canada Dry

neat pouring glass but when cleaned noticed it has a crack which is why they tossed it out

green beer bottle that I though at first might of been a soda , some glass jars , pile of rusted bottle caps

1 not broken soda for Macdonalds North Bay , a steinie 11 oz bottle , found the same bottle in that dump back in 2017 so have 2 now
