It's Hazardous Waste

If there’s even a drop of liquid left, an aerosol can is still pressurized and can explode, so dispose of it as hazardous waste.

Empties Are Recyclable

If an aerosol can is completely empty, it’s OK to recycle it with other metal cans.

Aerosol Cans Still Aren't Green

The United States stopped using chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in aerosol cans in the 1970s because they were depleting the ozone layer. Yet aerosol cans still contain chemicals that contribute to climate change, such as compressed gases and hydrocarbons.
