IF THEY CONTAINED NON-HAZARDOUS MATERIAL:

  • EMPTY aerosol cans are accepted at all CSWD Drop-Off Centers, or in your curbside recycling bin
  • If the can still contains material – if you can’t safely use it up or empty it – then it must be thrown in the trash. It CANNOT be recycled.

IF THEY CONTAINED HAZARDOUS MATERIAL:

  • Cans containing leftover hazardous materials must go to the CSWD Environmental Depot. They CANNOT go in the trash OR recycling bin.
