    Washing out food containers makes it easier on workers at the recycling center. Leaving stuck on food in containers can cause mold and bacteria growth and produce strong odors. Most recycling centers are equipped to handle stuck on food. Do your best to clean out food containers but don’t waste water by spending excessive amounts of time rinsing them out. An easy method is to take a spatula to clean out food containers and then give them a quick rinse.
