As we approach bug spray and sunscreen season, now’s a great time for a reminder that those aerosol cans can be recycled! Whether it’s shaving cream, hair spray, or sunscreen, these aerosol containers are made from aluminum or steel, which are both materials that are great to recycle and have some of the most significant benefits when recycled. Who knows, your hairspray bottle may even become a bicycle for someone else to enjoy next summer!
When recycling aerosol containers, remember to use all of the contents before recycling. Once they’re emptied, they go right in your recycling bin.
