Atlanta Embraces Aerosol Recycling

The city of Atlanta recently joined virtually every other major municipality in the United States in accepting empty aerosol cans in its recycling program. More than 5,300 municipalities now include aerosol cans in their collection program. Earth 911, the popular web site dedicated to recycling information, now lists three recyclers in the city of Atlanta and seven in surrounding suburbs that accept aerosol cans.

Most aerosol cans are made of steel and contain 25% recycled material. Aluminum aerosol cans have seen an increase in popularity and are also totally recyclable. Learn more about the recycling aspects of aerosol cans and other interesting information about aerosols, visit
