50 years’ service
Established in 1964, the Australian Aerosol Association Inc. represents companies involved in the manufacture and marketing of aerosol products, or the supply of aerosol components and ingredients.
Our mission is to:

- foster the growth and well-being of the Australian industry and promote the image of the aerosol package.
The Aerosol Advantage
Today's aerosol is the ultimate in modern, user-friendly technology.
Over 14 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 aerosols as well as details of the Australian aerosol scene throughout this site.

In 2014 Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week Focussed on 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.”
