I never drink this brand of beverage, yet I think the recycling bins in my town could, potentially, supply me with a near-infinite number of these particular, 1-gallon plastic containers, that formerly held Arizona(r) brand Iced Tea. I mean, for the cost of me pulling one out, whenever I see one.

Moreover, I would not feel guilty about stealing them, because my local recycler specifically wants PET (resin code 1) and HDPE (resin code 2) plastic bottles.

Bottles made from PP (resin code 5), including 1-gallon sized, Arizona Iced Tea bottles, they just throw away.

By the way, they do not take the caps off, which are typically made from PP (resin code 5). The buyer, to whom they sell their bundled plastic bottles, to will tolerate caps, but they do not want whole bottles (or tubs or any whole containers) made of polypropylene (PP).

It is perhaps surprising how picky those recycling guys are.

But the question in my my mind is: What are these Arizona Iced Tea bottles particularly useful for anyway? What can I make from them?

Moreover, how much value is added by removing the label?

Apparently that label is stuck on real good, like... what is good metaphor? How do they say?
