Description: EPA is unable to make a categorical determination as to whether various types of aerosol cans that may have contained a wide range of products exhibit the characteristic of reactivity. The generator is responsible for making this determination, Steel aerosol cans that have been punctured and drained would meet the definition of scrap metal. Scrap metal that is recycled is exempt from RCRA, thus generators need not make a hazardous waste determination.
