The Dangers Of Improper Aerosol Disposal

Environmental Pollution

Aerosol cans often contain chemicals that can be harmful to the environment if not disposed of correctly. These chemicals can leach into soil and water sources, causing pollution and harming wildlife.

Health Hazards

Many aerosols contain hazardous substances that can pose significant health risks to humans. Improper disposal can lead to the release of these toxic substances, potentially causing respiratory problems, skin irritation, and other health issues.

Fire Risks

Aerosol cans are pressurised containers, and if they are punctured, crushed, or exposed to heat, they can explode or catch fire. This can lead to injuries and property damage. Improperly disposed of aerosol cans in landfills or recycling facilities can also cause dangerous fires and explosions.

Our Aerosol Disposal UK Service

Proper disposal is crucial to minimise their impact on the environment. This is why we recycle aerosol cans and help businesses safely and sustainably manage their hazardous waste. Because of their hazardous nature, this waste should only be placed in your general recycling bin if completely empty.
