[ Ever Wonder Wednesday – How clean does Recycling need to be? ]

By Tori Carle, Waste Reduction Supervisor, City of Greensboro


Ever wonder how clean does my recycling need to be? Have someone in your family that is very strict about making sure your recycling is spotless? Well now the debate is over. Your containers do not have to be spotless.

My mom is the recycling queen in my family and puts lots of containers in the dishwasher before recycling—you do not have to do this! Really, most empty containers just need a quick rinse. You don’t have to scrub every food particle off.

For example: peanut butter jars are pretty tough to get clean. We recommend you put just a little bit of water in the empty jar, swish it around, maybe let it sit overnight, dump out the water, put the lid back on (if it is a plastic jar and lid), and recycle it. Even if there are little streaks of PB left in the jar that is ok. That being said, please do not toss your half-full jars of mayo jars and ketchup bottles in the recycling. For folks working in the recycling processing facilities, it’s wasteful and not sanitary. Plus, your recycling cart will stay fresher smelling if there is less food residue in your bottles and jars.
