Aerosol Cans: EPA’s Universal Waste Proposal and How It May Affect Your Business

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to determine if aerosols are universal waste and how to properly dispose of them in compliance with applicable federal regulations.



Aerosol cans are used for a wide variety of products—from pesticides to hair spray and paints and foods, to name a few. According to the Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA), 3.82 billion aerosol cans were filled nationwide in 2015 for use by commercial and industrial facilities, as well as by households. And, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), aerosol cans account for nearly 40 percent of retail items managed as hazardous wastes at large retail facilities.

Now, EPA is proposing to add hazardous waste aerosol cans to the “universal waste” program under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations. The proposal is designed to facilitate proper management of discarded aerosol cans by streamlining the requirements that otherwise might apply to collection and transport of the wastes. 

So, how can you get out ahead of the regulatory compliance curve? Use this on-demand webinar, when environmental attorney Aaron Goldberg will explain the practical impact that EPA’s proposed universal waste regulations may have on your business.

You’ll learn:

  • The complex and uncertain status of aerosol cans under the existing RCRA regulations
  •  The potential benefits of designating aerosol cans as universal wastes
  • Limitations on the scope of EPA’s universal waste proposal and how they may undercut the benefits of the rule
  • How the final rule would be implemented in the states and how that might complicate interstate shipments
  • And more!
