Collect and Recycle

Aerosol Can Recycling

We Provide a Flexible Aerosol Can Recycling Service Across the UK

Do you need an Aerosol Can Recycling service for your business? Collect & Recycle can provide a solution for your end of life aerosols to ensure the safe and compliant disposal of these hazardous waste items.

Now, people are often unsure as to how to correctly recycle aerosol cans. The combination of gases and metal in these cans can make them potentially dangerous or hazardous. Here at Collect and Recycle, we can collect aerosols and drop them off at a recycling centre on your behalf. We have a verified haulage network and collections can be made on a scheduled or ad hoc basis, depending on your needs and preferences. If you have regular requirements when it comes to hazardous waste disposal, we can even place on-site containers on your premises!

Helping Sustainability With Our Aerosol Can Recycling Service

The UK uses around 600 million aerosol cans each and every year, with each person using an average of ten cans on an annual basis. Almost two-thirds of aerosol cans are composed of tin-plated steel, while the other third are created using high-grade aluminium. Both of these materials are easily recyclable, which means that around 30,000 tonnes of metal could be reclaimed worldwide if everyone recycled their aerosol cans rather than sending them to landfill!

How we work

When disposing of aerosol cans, it’s important that you ensure that the cans are completely empty. It is also important that you don’t pierce the cans, crush the cans or flatten the cans before handing them over for recycling. This could prove dangerous. Once you hand your cans over to us, you can rest assured that they will be taken to authorised treatment facilities where a full audit trial has been carried out to ensure full compliance!

Our priority is to take the hassle out of waste collections and provide your business with an easy, compliant and environmentally friendly solution. Through our dedicated account management team, we will manage all aspects of the collection & disposal of waste.
