Aerosol cans are commonly known as spray cans; these are used to dispense a product under pressure as a fine spray. A wide variety of industries, businesses, governmental agencies, and schools use aerosol cans. Many cleaners, lubricants, paints, solvents, and pesticides are packaged in aerosol cans. In addition, households commonly generate aerosol cans; however, households are exempt from the hazardous waste regulations. DNREC recommends that households properly dispose of their empty aerosol cans by recycling. For unused or partially full cans, DNREC recommends households take those containers to household hazardous waste collection centers. Visit www.dswa.com to find a collection center.
