Clean Earth posts big bump in aerosol can recycling

HATBORO, Pennsylvania – Specialty waste processor Clean Earth says its Clean Earth Aerosol Recycling System expects to process 13 million aerosol cans by the end of 2020. That’s an 85 percent increase from the company’s aerosol can recycling in 2015.

Nearly three billion aerosol cans are produced in the U.S. each year.

The company specializes in advanced, sustainable aerosol recycling for pressurized steel cans, aluminum cans, plastics and glass.

Clean Earth ensures that 100 percent of each can goes through the recycling process. It also commits to zero landfill, carbon footprint reduction, no long-term degradation exposure to the environment, and cost-effective, customized solutions for every customer.

Clean Earth has 19 transfer, storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs) and technology that allows for efficient processing of aerosol cans. Its hazardous waste facility in Morgantown, West Virginia,  processes aerosol cans received from coast to coast.

“It’s exciting to have bypassed one of our core company goals this year for the Aerosol Recycling System, which was the processing of 11.4 million aerosol cans, by millions to reach this milestone today,” said Clean Earth vice-president of operations Hector Sanchez.

Clean Earth provides remediation, disposal, recycling and beneficial reuse solutions for contaminated soil, dredged material and hazardous and non-hazardous wastes, with the unique capability of providing a one-source, full-service recycling solution to handle multiple waste streams from a single customer. By turning specialty waste into recycling opportunities, Clean Earth creates a better future for all people, the planet and its customers.
