    Before reading this article, I did not know that the aerosol cans can even be thought as hazardous. I’ll have to look for an aerosol disposal service to help with the process for when I need it. I did not know that you can get refillable compressed air containers.

    I have just purchased a new pig can recycler, and am excited to begin using it. I have one concern, are there any regulations or any safeguards as to the mixing of the cans contents in the collection drum?
