How dry does an item need to be to go in the recycling bin?
Republic Services recommends no more than 1 teaspoon of liquid in a container.
Liquid and food residue can easily contaminate paper, newspaper and cardboard. Please rinse any food residue out of containers and give them a good shake to remove as much liquid as possible before putting them in the recycling bin.
