HOW TO RECYCLE AEROSOLS

Ensure aerosols are completely empty before recycling

Do not pierce, crush or flatten aerosol cans  

Detach any loose or easily removable parts, such as the lid, and dispose of them with the rest of your recycling

 

WHAT ARE AEROSOLS MADE FROM?

Around 60% of aerosols are made from tinplated steel and approx 40% are made from aluminium. Both of these metals are recyclable. Aerosols also contain some small plastic and rubber components including the lid, valve and dip tube which are extracted in the recycling process.
