CDM Waste Management Guidelines
Aerosol Cans pose a unique hazardous waste problem because they consist of three types of materials, each of which may be classified as hazardous waste: 1) the can itself; 2) the liquid product contained in the can; and 3) the gaseous propellant. EH&S has provided the CDM with a number of aerosol collection containers throughout the laboratories and clinical areas. Aerosol cans must have the original cap placed on the can or the nozzle removed. The can must then be placed in an EH&S provided collection container with a EH&S provided pre-labeled hazardous waste label affixed.
