Last time we were out, some other hikers suggested that my tuna garbage would attract bears.
I think that they are thinking that tuna will get quite smelly, etc. After a few days they could be right.
I dont rinse out the foil packs, just put them in my garbage ziplock, because nothing to do with the water , and I dont really want to drink tuna water. Garbage zip goes in the food bag in an odor resist liner too. Stays either with me, or gets hung depending.
If no one else is around, I might burn garbage and retrieve the al foil liners, and anything unburnt from the fire the next morning to pack out. But usually we dont make a fire, just eat and hit the sack. More than once Ive been dissapointed that garbage cans I planned on ditching garbage in were locked at a road crossing (also bathrooms , but thats another story)
By the end of several days Im often carrying a lot of garbage from 2 people, some getting quite smelly, and the wt is adding up.
Who actually rinses out what they pack out?
