Question of the Week: Classifying Aerosol Can Waste
- Household hazardous wastes, including aerosol cans, are excluded from regulation as hazardous material. As this exclusion applies at the point of generation, in the household, it would continue to apply to aerosol cans collected by most municipal recycling programs. [40 CFR 261.4(b)(1)]
- If you recycle the metal portion of an aerosol can, it is excluded from hazardous waste regulation as “scrap metal.” [40 CFR 261.4(a)(13), 40 CFR 261.6(a)(3)(ii)]

No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
