Recycling

Empty aerosol containers are as recyclable as other steel cans. Almost 90 percent of aerosol containers are made primarily of steel with a thin coating of tin. The tin is recovered during processing and plastic components are burned during reheating. In today’s large-scale recycling facilities, any propellant or product left in cans presents no hazard.
