GRR Aerosols offers the only system that disposes of waste aerosols by recycling 100% of the components. Our unique waste management process provides our customers with a positive, green image while minimizing the risks, burdens, and liabilities associated with the disposal of aerosols. We recycle both hazardous and non-hazardous aerosol waste in full compliance with all RCRA, EPA, and state regulations.

GRR Aerosols’ patented processor safely crushes metal aerosol containers and separates the liquid concentrates from the propellants. The liquids are recycled into waste fuel which is burned in the production of cement. The propellants are primarily burned as fuel in the on-site drum reconditioning facility. Closing the loop, the spray cans are reused in recycled metal products.

Aerosol products themselves are made from more than 25% recycled materials.The Consumer Aerosol Products Council, a respected non-profit organization that provides factual information about aerosol products, recognizes GRR Aerosols as a company that further enhances the environmental advantages of aerosol packaging by completely recycling both empty and non-empty aerosol containers. With a focus on sustainable packaging and practices and environmental sensitivity, GRR is a leader in aerosol safety and compliance.
