Aerosol cans, if empty, may be placed in the same blue box as your containers and set out at the curb or taken to your nearest depot. Please remove the lids and place in the same blue box.

Aerosol cans with product remaining inside are considered hazardous and may be dropped off at the Peterborough City/County Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste Depot at 400 Pido Rd, or take them to one of the seasonal MHSW sites.
