Specialized Solutions 

Republic Services is the first and only company in the U.S. offering patent-pending Aerosol Recycling Technology (ART) for aerosol can waste that produces recyclable metal, reusable alternative and liquid fuels, and is landfill free with zero emissions. 

The ART Process 

The most sustainable solution in the nation, our fully enclosed aerosol can recycling process is equipped with oxygen monitoring sensors to protect the environment, and the health and safety of our certified professionals operating the system.  

Here’s how it works: 

  1. Cans transferred into hopper featuring an airtight inert chamber.
  2. Under vacuum, cans compacted to produce dry metal bricks for multi-purpose recycling. 
  3. Liquid product and gas propellant 100% captured and separated by vacuum and compression technology to produce reusable alternative fuel. 
  4. Patented technologies further compress gas propellant into purified recyclable liquid fuel, similar to liquid petroleum gas. 

What Sets ART Apart? 

The unique, patent-pending aerosol can recycling technology developed by Republic Services helps reduce aerosol can disposal in landfills by turning discarded aerosol can waste into new, compatible end products that recirculate into the market for a wide variety of reuse and to safely fuel the future.
