How Clean is Clean Enough?

  • Before recycling, empty and dry out your containers to prevent leaks.
  • Please do not put your recyclable items in the dishwasher.
  • One good wipe with a paper towel or dishrag is good enough for the recycling can.
  • Ask yourself, "Can what is still in here smear or soil other paper recyclables?" If yes, then it's too dirty to recycle
  • If cleaning a recyclable item requires more water than it would save by recycling, then it's better to dispose of it than recycle it.
