How can I best use all these glass bottles?

I would like to landscape using these empty beer bottles. Basically, I want to set the bottles end down into the ground and have a patio floor of the glass bottle bottoms. Can I do this? Have you ever done this or seen this?

The recycling center in my town does not take glass. The nearest place that does is 50 miles away. I like to buy beer in glass bottles and then drink the beer but I don't like to throw the empty beer bottles in the trash. I have plenty of room to mess around outside with landscaping and such, and in fact need to do so.
I can build a slipform wall w masonry/bottles, but I would rather excavate an area and fill w sand and set the bottles in the sand and then pack sand or perhaps mortar around the bottles. Thoughts?
Should I just forget it and haul (and then continue to haul) these bottles an hour away to the recycling every so often?
