It is the responsibility of the generator to determine whether the aerosol can is hazardous waste. It is important to remember that there are three potential hazards: the product in the can, the can itself, or the gaseous propellant. If the generator cannot show that all three elements are non-hazardous waste, then the generator must manage the aerosol can and its contents as hazardous waste. Due to the construction of an aerosol can and the wide range of potential contents, it can be extremely difficult to make a nonhazardous waste determination.
