Country Clean - Recycle Bin Collection

I saw a bin collection this morning. The general waste went into the same truck as the recycle material. Am I missing something? Am I wasting my time separating and washing my recycle material?

I used to work for Greenstar, just as an example with the same truck.

Monday:Waste
Tuesday:Compost
Wednesday:Recycling

All are emptied under the one roof in segregated areas for each.

Also waste and recycling are collected on alternating weeks.
