Aerosols

These are cans/tins which contain a pressurised gas, or air, with another chemical substance suspended in the gas. They take more specialist recycling due to the pressurised nature, and need to release residual gas safely, without contaminating the environment.

The cans themselves are usually made from tin plated steel, or aluminium, which can both be recycling, and some small amount of plastic, which needs to be separated.

Examples include; deodorant spray cans, hair spray can, air freshener can, shaving foam can, cleaning sprays in cans.
