Cleaning Q&A: Wash before recycling?


The Nest Q&A

Do I have to wash bottles before I recycle?


No matter where you live and what your specific recycling protocols are, it’s always important to completely clean out any cans or bottles. Trying to recycle a jar with little scraps of chili left all over the inside = no good. This also reduces the smell of your recycling area, which is good whether you store it inside (better for your own nose) or outside (makes it less attractive to wild animals).
