Aerosol recycling FAQs
Residual liquid and propellant remain inside “empty” cans (even when the cans can’t be sprayed anymore), and these substances can be hazardous when they leach into the soil and groundwater surrounding residential communities and natural habitats. But because they’re challenging to disassemble, most end up in landfill or getting incinerated. This is problematic because it takes steel cans 50 years to degrade, plastic 100 years, and residual paint and other substances 13+ years!
Thankfully, there’s a way to divert aerosol products from landfill and responsibly recycle them. All spray paint, primers and coatings, poly sealers, and poly stains are safely processed in-house. Then, with the help of our partners, plastic caps and spray tips are processed into flakes and pellets for reuse (such as plastic injection molding), aluminum cans are processed, refined, and reshaped for a variety of uses, and all other material is responsibly disposed of.
