An aerosol can cannot be relieved of pressure through normal use. Even when “empty”, the retained propellant can react to heat or pressure when crushed or baled. With our system, you can safely puncture the aerosol can, relieve the pressure, and collect any residual liquids. By recycling the punctured aerosol cans, you will eliminate an entire category of waste from your waste stream. Assists your compliance with ISO 14001.

The APU is designed by Pressing Solutions and sold exclusively through Aerosol .

The Potential for Recycling:

Each year, the UK uses around 600 million aerosols. On average, that's 10 cans per person or 27 cans per household. Aerosols account for 4% of the metals packaging stream. We estimate that there are about 25,000 tonnes of tin plated steel and 4,500 tonnes of high grade aluminium available from recycling aerosol in the UK.
