How come 95% of all beer cans/bottle litter are either Bud or Coors? We sell plenty of other brands and Microbrews in my area.

Thoughts?

I'd look at the demographics that each brand caters to, and I think you'll find your answer.

tulips, last time I hauled my step daughter's and SIL's beer pong cans off, aluminum cans were bringing 60 cents a pound. 24 cans to a pound a friend told me.
Mr., I worked for the state highway department for 26 years and did a lot of litter bugging. Many times we would find a full 6 pack in the ditch. This was usually right at the edge of town. Somebody said the teenagers would dump it on their way home! Most of that would be the cheap stuff.

I never weighed an empty beer can, but I'm betting it takes way more than 24 cans to equal a pound.

Those brands are flying off the shelves, so maybe they continue flying after that?
