Do I need to clean items before recycling them?

Items need to be rinsed out and cleaned of any food debris. They don’t need to be dishwasher clean. 

Please dry them before placing in your cart. This prevents contaminating other items and also avoids turning paper recycling into a soggy mess.

Clean and dry recyclables also help keep your cart clean.
