E-M:/ bottled water for disaster victims

News reports often mention that "bottled water" (or some similar term) is being provided to survivors of such and such a disaster, usually one that contaminates local sources of drinking water.

Does anyone know what types and sizes of containers bottled water is usually distributed in after a disaster? 

What is the typically the fate of those containers once the water is used?

If, as some propose, we boycott bottled water, what impact if any might that have on the availability or cost of bottled water for emergencies?  Are those interested in boycotting bottle water interested in only boycotting the small water bottles available in grocery stores and vending machines?  If so, the campaign should make that clear.
