As aerosol cans continue to occupy space within our ecosystem, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined their presence as an official component of the universal waste program. Due to their hazardous waste properties, this guideline is expected to implement significant progress when handling the recovery and recycling of aerosol cans.
