The garbage collectors separate more valuable recyclables such as aluminum and tin cans. So, I do the same thing with those rinsed materials (separated by material).
I also do this for beer bottle caps, which are tin (alas, an all-too-often thing I encounter on litter patrol). The garbage collectors do not separate these because it is too time consuming. I imagine it is also too time consuming for the people who separate recyclables at the landfill.
Works for me, so thought I would share the idea.
