Do I need to prepare my beverage containers before taking them to the bottle depot?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

Please rinse all containers clean. Beverage containers can be flattened side to side to save space, but depot operators must be able to read all labels. Do not crush pop cans from top to bottom.
