Many personal care and food products are packaged in metal aerosol spray containers. These metal containers are recyclable and banned from the garbage.
If the aerosol was a non-hazardous household product (see examples below) and
is completely empty, you can recycle with the CRD curbside program or it can be taken to any metal
recycling facility. Aerosol containers are no longer explosive once they are empty.
Accepted for curbside collection are aluminum aerosol containers used for food, air fresheners, shaving cream, deodorant, hairspray and foam insulation.
If they are not empty, or they once contained Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) type materials such as paint, pesticide or fuel (propane, butane, etc.), homeowners can bring them to the Hartland Depot
