Don't Toss Aerosol Cans Into Trash Compactor

From Associated Press

The Household Products Disposal Council says aerosol containers should never be thrown into an incinerator or trash compactor. It also says all aerosol cans should be emptied before being put into the trash by depressing the button until no more of the product comes out.

Products that go down the drain normally should be disposed of by pouring them down the drain with plenty of water, small amounts at a time.
