Aerosol Cans

Aerosol cans that contain household hazardous waste (HHW) such as household cleaners or insecticides, should be managed using the guidelines provided here

Aerosol cans that contain non-hazardous materials such as latex paint or cooking spray, should be bagged tightly to prevent leakage and placed in the regular garbage. 

Please note:  Very few York County municipalities accept aerosol cans in their curbside or drop-off recycling programs. To find out if your municipality accepts them, please contact them directly.
