Every other volunteer house I ever worked with bought large, recyclable bottles and people filled water bottles but we have a large, never ending source of water bottles.
My suggestion; bring you own refillable bottles and pack out any snack paper you bring. I remember walking on a beach in Haiti and there was all this garbage and the man was complaining. I asked why they just din't pick it up and he said, "But it isn't our garbage." I looked around and knew he was right.
I just got back from Haiti where I left many non biodegradable bottles in their waterways and countryside. My joints may hurt form the mosquito bite but this hurts more. Ouch. A painful realization.
