It’s common knowledge that you should do a light rinse of recyclable containers before putting them in the recycling bin. But did you know you should skip the rinse when it comes to any containers that have a soapy residue? Think about bottles that once held laundry detergent, shampoo and hand soap. These should not be rinsed. Why not? The residual soap can help clean plastics during reprocessing at the recycling plant! Simply toss these items into the bin without a rinse!
