  • Individual aerosol containers cannot exceed 1 liter in volume.
  • Aerosols must be contained by strong outer packaging, such as a double-walled box.
  • Max weight of a single filled box = 15 lbs.
  • Max box volume of a shipping box = 24” x 24” x 18”
  • A “Limited quantity marking” sticker must be included on the exterior of the shipping box along with the shipping label. This label may be found in the "Resources" section below.

Best practices for recycling

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the aerosol containers are safely punctured and any residual gases and liquids are removed. The containers are then broken down into plastic and metal components. Plastics are cleaned and melted into new plastics, and metals are smelted into ingots for reuse.
