The Aerosol Advantage

Today's aerosol is the ultimate in modern, user-friendly technology. 

Over 15 billion aerosols are produced worldwide annually - proof of their popularity, convenience and value for money. Here in Australia, we purchase over 240 million aerosols every year - over 10 for every man, woman and child! All aerosols can be recycled.

Environmentally as well as technically, the aerosol has evolved to meet the needs of the twenty-first century. Explore the technical and environmental advantages of the aerosol package throughout this site.

Are YOU recycling your empty aerosols?

 “It’s surprising that more than half of Australians wrongly believe that aerosol cans can’t be recycled,”

said Planet Ark’s Head of Campaigns, Brad Gray. “In fact, they are made from fully recyclable steel or aluminium.

Once they are empty it is perfectly safe to put them in the recycling.”
