Empty aerosol cans need not be segregated from other regular and may be disposed of at approved Class I or Class II landfills. Nonempty aerosols cans, however, are classified as hazardous and should not be disposed of in landfills.
The preferred management of non-empty aerosol cans is to separate them from other municipal solid waste and direct them to household hazardous waste roundups or ecocentres for recycling. Information on toxic round-ups can be obtained from the local municipality or Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development at (780) 427-2700.
