Aerosol Cans

Aerosol cans can contain a variety of materials.  Aerosol cans that contain household hazardous waste (HHW) such as household cleaners or insecticides, should be disposed of 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 your 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.
