What Should I Recycle?
Insecticides, deodorants, spray paint, and other aerosol cans pose a real threat if thrown into the garbage. Not only will they fill up the landfill, but also the toxins will seep into the ground, causing problems with the soil and nearby water supply.

Dangerous for the Environment
Although manufacturers and proponents of the aerosol industry praise the long shelf life an ease of use, the US banned the use of CFC’s (Chlorofluorocarbons) back in 1978. Those who oppose the use of aerosol cans have noted the link between the correlation of how hydrocarbon dangers and climate change go hand in hand with one another.
If you’re recycling aerosol cans, be sure to recycle the plastic lid as well. Never take off the spray nozzle from the can, as even if the aerosol can is empty there is still pressure inside, which can be potentially dangerous if punctured.
