Environment - Recycling

According to the Consumer Aerosol Products Council (CAPCO) more than 5,300 municipal locations nationwide currently collect empty aerosol cans.

Using up the Entire Product is the Key

Aerosol containers are airtight and the contents will not spoil or evaporate. They can be used and stored over long periods of time. Always store aerosol cans in a cool, dry area away from heat or open flame.

Our Components are Recyclable

  • The aerosol cans we use are made of either steel or aluminum, both recycle. The steel cans we use have between 25%-33% recycled steel in them. And, they can be recycled again. According to the Steel Recycling Institute, 70% of steel containers were recovered for recycling in 2013 in the US.
  • All of our over caps are recyclable. They are made either from HDPE (high-density polyethylene) or PP (polypropylene). HDPE is plastic recycle number 2 and PP is plastic recycle number 5. Recyclers readily accept both types of plastic. The containers for our wipes are also recyclable (HDPE / plastic recycle number 2).
  • Our polypropylene labels (plastic number 5) and paper labels are 100% recyclable.
