Many cleaners, paints, pesticides, personal care products and adhesives are classified as Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and are packaged in metal aerosol spray containers. These metal containers are recyclable and banned from the garbage.
Partially full spray cans are generally considered hazardous waste because they contain ignitable or chlorinated solvents or other toxins such as pesticides and phthalates.
Whether empty or partially full, residential quantities of these containers can be dropped off at no charge at the Hartland depot and other Product Care
facilities. Check the listings below for additional drop off locations.
Some clean, empty aerosol containers are accepted in the blue box. See Aerosol Containers (non-HHW)
