Aerosol spray cans are technically recyclable by most municipalities, but the cans must be absolutely, positively empty in order to recycle them. Because the pressurized contents in the cans make them dangerous, even cans with very little in them need to be disposed of with household hazardous waste. What makes a spray can totally empty? When you press the nozzle and hear absolutely nothing at all. If you don’t even hear a hissing sound, it’s good to go for recycling. If you have any doubt, don’t toss it in the recycling bin.
