Aerosol Can Recycling

Why Recycle Aerosols With Us?

Aerosols are one of the most common regulated waste streams — virtually every facility has cleaning products or health & beauty items that are aerosols. The good news is that most aerosols can be recycled through g2 instead of going to hazardous waste. And our recycling containers are better-designed than ones offered by competitors because they are reclosable and have state-specific compliance language on them.

How Does It Work?

Where Can I Find My Program Data?

When we set up your recycling account, you are provided with secure login access to an online data system that contains all your recycling records. Every single container is tracked and is individually recorded, including by location. So you can know instantly if any of your facilities are not recycling! You can also query the database to see your records over a set period of time, or within a certain geography. And finally, you can also download certificates of recycling if you need paper-based records.

What Are the Regulations?

Generally, any aerosol that is no longer going to be used has to typically be disposed of as hazardous waste. However, the United States Environmental Protection Agency has issued guidance on how to recycle aerosols without having to treat them as waste. g2 can manage your aerosols effectively so that they are not considered waste, potentially reducing your "waste generator status." This can help to reduce costs and eliminate the need to list aerosols on hazardous waste manifests. Our programs also comply with state-specific universal waste rules. And it is an easy process to transition to g2 from any other aerosol vendor — we work with you to ensure a smooth operational change.
