100% Haz waste avoidance.
Our unique technology finds a use for each part of the aerosol can.
Understand the process. »
We accept full, used, and empty aerosol cans in bulk as well as non-aerosol products like astringents, perfumes and camping fuels. While we typically deal in truckloads, we also accept as little as one pallet depending upon frequency and constituents. We accept a variety of commercial, medical and industrial aerosol products containing chemicals we distill and return to the market.
It is our aim to reuse and recycle 100% of the products we take in. For that reason, we are not able to take mixed, used household aerosols. We need to gather a minimum amount of the same product in order for it to be purified and ready for reuse.
Why are used or off-spec aerosol cans so often treated as "solid waste" or "hazardous waste"? Aerosol cans pose a danger because they contain materials under pressure. According to the EPA, even unsalable aerosol cans that are shipped to a recycling facility must be counted towards a company's "solid waste" tonnage if the material inside is not reclaimed. Recycle Aerosol is the only company in North America with the technology to offer 100% landfill avoidance for medical waste disposal, waste oil disposal and solid waste disposal of aerosol cans. It's reverse logistics at its finest: each part is reused or recycled.
