Aerosol Can Disposal

The challenge as we see it

Most aerosol cans are considered hazardous by federal and state regulations due to inherent characteristics. Under the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), hazardous waste must be properly identified, stored, transported, treated and disposed of, and generators are financially responsible for cleaning up the effects of improper disposal.
