Why rinse foil trays before recycling ?

What does my council mean when they ask me to rinse foil trays before recycling? This video explains why it’s important to rinse out food residue to help with the recycling of aluminium foil trays.
Basically it stops other recyclables getting contaminated, and cuts down on smells so it’s a good habit to get into. No need to run the tap, just swill them out at the end of the washing up then recycle – easy!
This film is one of a series produced by Alupro to explain how to prepare aluminium packaging for recycling.
Please share and link to the video to help more aluminium packaging get back in the recycling loop.
