Recycle at home = Yes
Aerosols can be recycled by putting them in your ‘container mix’ (plastics, glass, cans and cartons) recycling bin. This includes:
- Hairspray cans
- Deodorant cans
- Air freshener cans
- Furniture polish cans
Recycle out of home = Yes
Aerosols can also be recycled at local collection points and at your council-run Household Reuse and Recycling Centre.
Be a great recycler…
- Ensure aerosol cans are completely empty before recycling
- Do not try to pierce, crush or flatten aerosol cans
- If in doubt, leave it out. Don’t let your enthusiasm to recycle contaminate a whole truck load of recycling – see What is ‘contamination’ and why is it important?
