Metal

You can recycle some types of aerosol cans. They must be empty and have contained food, laundry, or health and beauty products. This includes cooking sprays, whipped cream, frosting, spray starch, anti-static spray, sun block, first aid spray, hair spray, hair mousse, deodorant, shaving cream, and air fresheners. Put the cover in the trash.

Do not puncture, pierce, flatten, or remove the nozzle.
