One thought on “Recycling in town gets confusing as standards, enforced by China, toughen

  1. I always struggle with food containers — for example, if I finish a jar of peanut butter or a can of tomato paste, do I literally have to completely wash it out and dry it for it to be recycled? It won’t be clean unless I basically scrub it or put it in the dishwasher? That will add a lot of energy and water usage — is it still worth recycling these items? Other things (pickle jars, yogurt containers) are easy to give a quick rinse, buy anything slightly thicker makes recycling the containers difficult…?
