Your go-to guide for waste & recycling in the Twin Cities.
Aerosol cans contain liquid or gas propellant, packed under pressure, and can explode under certain conditions. Full or partially filled cans are potentially dangerous as they may explode if exposed to heat or punctured, such as by being compacted in a garbage truck. Protect your waste hauler and yourself by properly disposing of aerosol cans.
Are your aerosol cans empty or do they still have product in them? If the aerosol cans are empty, put them in the garbage. Check with your hauler to see if they accept them for recycling.
If the aerosol cans still contain product, bring them to your county household hazardous waste collection site.
Purchase only as much of a product as you will use, and use up all of the products you have.
Purchase products as pump sprays, refillable or liquid concentrates instead of aerosols. Pressurized aerosol products often produce a finer mist that is more easily inhaled than other forms of products which can lead to health problems.
