Make it recycle ready

  • make sure the aerosol can is completely empty.
  • remove the plastic lid.

Where do aerosol cans go next?

They will be:

  1. collected by your local council’s kerbside recycling truck.
  2. taken to a recycling sorting facility.
  3. separated from other recyclables, such as plastic and cardboard.
  4. taken to a re-processing centre and broken down.
  5. taken to a manufacturer to be made into new products.
