Paint and pesticide aerosol containers are Product Stewardship
items as well as being household hazardous waste. Residential quantities can be dropped off at no charge at the Hartland Landfill Recycling Facility and other Product Care
facilities. Check the listings below for additional drop off locations.
Clean, empty aerosol containers are accepted in the blue box.
If the aerosol was a non-hazardous household product (see examples below) and is completely empty you can place them in your CRD blue box for curb side pick-up or they can be taken to any metal recycling facility
Aerosol containers are no longer explosive once they are empty. Please remove the plastic lid which is also accepted in your blue box once it is removed.
If they are not
empty, or they once contained hazardous materials such as paint or fuel, homeowners can bring them to the Household Hazardous Waste facility at Hartland landfill. This does not apply to businesses.
Accepted are aluminum aerosol containers used for food, air fresheners, shaving cream, deodorant and hairspray. These can be taken, free of charge, to the facilities listed here
. See the criteria above for curbside collection.
Please note that not all facilities listed below will accept all kinds of aerosol containers. Phone before going to be sure.
