I think that in the 1930's most bottles were glass. Stone bottles were being phased out.
For those who watch the "Time Team" archaeological programme in the UK, last week they were reworking a site that had last been excavated in the 1930's. They came across a cache of glass lemonade bottles that had been buried by the previous excavators.
Burying your rubbish was the correct thing to do. Even in the 1990's I can remember doing the same in the desert in Oman. Here in the UK we find a litter bin or take the rubbish home nowadays.
