Does plastic go to landfill if it has food on it?

Is plastic cleaned during the recycling process or do I have to clean it myself first?

    Good to know, should have known, but have not done much of that. So then, recycling plastic in some places is not advisable, but I am planning to have a 5 gallon bucket with 4 gallons of water set close by to fix it better.

    Clean ANY material sent for recycling. People have to handle it after it has been shipped.

    Yes. Plastic that has been recycle is clean before becoming another plastic item.
