I have several aerosol cans that are partially full. Can they be recycled, or should I empty them first? ~Spray Can User

Dear Spray Can User,

Aerosol cans cannot be recycled until they are empty. Anything left in an aerosol can is considered hazardous waste (including whipped cream and hairspray). The Recycling Center does accept these cans, and they go in the bag or bin with steel cans.
