Aerosol Cans

Aerosol Cans!

Illegal in Garbage & Drains

Aerosol cans are pressurized and can explode and cause fires in disposal trucks. Only recycle them if they are completely empty. Otherwise, they are considered hazardous waste.

Special Directions

Aerosol cans can be dropped off free of charge at Eastern Regional Landfill by scheduling an appointment for a regularly scheduled Household Hazardous Waste event. If you have less than 3 cans, you can drop them off at the Scale House at Eastern Regional Landfill anytime.
