Aerosol Cans

Aerosol cans including aerosol paint, hairspray, deodorant, spray polish, air freshener, fly spray, bathroom cleaners etc are not accepted in most local council’s kerbside recycling bin, box or bag or at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre. Aerosol cans cannot be disposed of in your local council’s kerbside residual bin. Aerosols cannot currently be collected for recycling as part of the kerbside collection because they are pressurised containers containing gas. In large quantities they could cause danger and damage to the sorting technology and staff in our recycling facilities

METAL FACTS: * Many metal items cannot be recycled as the recycling process is only designed to sort particular items. * Metal packaging that is recyclable - aluminium and tins cans - should be empty and rinsed clean of food / liquid.
