Residual liquids of 4,000 spent aerosol cans.
Aerosolv pays for itself after processing less than 130 aerosol cans.
Once punctured and drained, the aerosol can is a recyclable container that will cost nothing for disposal.
By allowing them to recycle millions of pounds of steel each year with the Aerosolv technology
“Thank you for your continued interest in our recycling program. Over the course of one year, COMNAVBASE Norfolk realized a savings of $333,738.00 by utilizing the Aerosolv Aerosol Can Recycling System.”

“We are presently using your Aerosolv system at our Hazardous Waste site. We are one of the largest refineries on the Gulf Coast with a 350,000-BPD plus capacity and a commitment to recycling. We recycle around 700 aerosol cans per month so your system is a vital tool in our recycling strategy.”

Companies pay hefty fines for the improper handling of hazardous waste, and aerosol cans are no exception. Spent aerosol cans are considered hazardous waste while still under pressure, and it is against RCRA regulations to dispose of in the trash. With Aerosolv, you can safely puncture the aerosol can, relieve the can’s pressure, filter VOCs, and collect any residual liquids. The result is RCRA compliant scrap steel meeting guideline.
With Aerosolv’s aerosol can recycling technology, you can rest assured that you are not only doing what is best for your business and the environment, but you are also doing it under the sound approval of the government. After extensive evaluation and field testing, the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Department of Toxic Substances Control certified Aerosolv as a Hazardous Waste Treatment Technology.
It greatly benefits the environment by converting an aerosol can into a recyclable steel container, thus diverting it from landfill. Four aerosol cans are equal to recycling one (1) pound of steel, which saves 5,450 BTUs in subsequent steel production.
