    Yes, as it doesn't take any time to do it.

    Yes.   Any organic material will burn off when the metal is melted down so it doesn't effect the recycling process but dirty cans stink and attract insects and vermin.

    well, No, because that would be a waste of  precious WATER!  You just can't win , can you? 

    But yes,  joking aside, I always rinse out the bottles.......the cans, not so much.

    People know that they should, but sometimes people don't have the energy to do it all the time.
