Aerosol Can Disposal
Compliant Aerosol Recycling
American industry consumes 3,000,000,000 aerosol cans every year, 375,000 tons of steel - enough to produce 500,000 cars.
A wide variety of major industries utilize aerosol and spray paint cans, spanning industrial manufacturing, municipalities, and vocational education, among others. What happens to an aerosol can after it has reached its useful life? Proper disposal guidelines dictate that pressurized aerosol cans are typically sealed in a drum to be processed as hazardous waste at a landfill or facility. The cans are considered to be hazardous because they contain a liquid hazardous waste or are still pressurized, which may cause them to potentially explode at the landfills. Companies that do not dispose of aerosol cans properly risk paying hefty fines.
