It's nice, but not mandatory.

The #temp is stored in tempdb.  When the connection is closed it'll be deleted anyway.  But if you have an open connection that remains for a while it can use up disk space that's not needed.

And you learn something new every day:

Note that just because you drop a temp table it still might be cached.
