Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Aerosol cans are a difficult waste stream to manage. While they may appear rather innocuous, aerosol cans, which are likely used throughout your business’s production operations, may present significant environmental dangers and safety concerns.

For instance, aerosol cans may contain paint, lubricants, glues, pesticides, and many other chemicals, some of which may be hazardous to your workforce and the environment. The wide variety of aerosol cans that are used at a typical facility, the different products they contain, and other unique qualities make aerosols particularly challenging to manage.

It’s important to ensure that aerosol cans containing hazardous materials are actually empty when handling and disposing of them. Additionally, for acutely hazardous materials, triple rinsing may be required to ensure that the actual container is not hazardous to handle. Understanding these differences in how to handle aerosols is crucial to maintaining compliance and keeping your workforce healthy.

Join us to learn how to manage and dispose of aerosol cans in an efficient, cost-effective manner that complies with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and key OSHA regulations. You’ll also gain insight into typical state programs governing aerosol can management and disposal.
