Clean metal tubes? I’ve got a tube of tomato purée which says it recyclable - but which must be thoroughly washed before recycling! Obviously, once I’ve used it all up and squeezed it out, it’s not going to wash very well! What do you do with yours?

Chuck it in the recycling anyway, I am not about to abrade myself or worse, and anyway, they melt them down and it doesn’t matter about a squidge of tomato apparently.

Yeah i just chuck it in. dh works a comapany that buys the waste of the council and he says they have special machines that clean it all properly and sort it all anyway so as long as it’s not so filthy that it can’t be stored from your bin to the factories its fine. Same with toothpaste tubes etc. wouldn’t risk cutting them and trying to clean them smile
