How to recycle aerosols
Ensure cans are completely empty before recycling.
Do not pierce, crush or flatten them.
Detach any loose or easily removable parts, such as the lid, and dispose of them with the rest of your recycling.
Good to know
Around 60% of aerosols are made from tinplated steel and approx 40% are made from aluminium. Both of these metals are recyclable.
If everyone in UK recycled one empty can of air freshener, enough energy could be saved to run a TV in 273,000 homes for a year!
