Recycle your aerosols


Each year on average, the UK uses around 600 million aerosols – that works out at 27 households a year. The main body of an aerosol is usually made from tinplated steel or aluminium, both of which are 100 per cent recyclable.

Recycling your aerosols in Dorset aerosols is easy; either place it in with your kerbside collection or drop it off at any mini recycling centre that accepts cans.


  • Make sure it is empty
  • Do not attempt to pierce or squash the can
  • Try and remove any plastic parts that come off easily, for example the cap
  • Place in with your kerbside recycling or take it to a mini recycling centre
