Aspen cans

Recommended Posts

Although I have refilled off a barrel we have an increasing number of cans (a dumpy full)

Any thoughts on disposal as council roadside collection rejected them

cheers

Pretty sure thats what Eddie said. Its probably a grey area though, ie a homeowner throwing the odd can away would be fine..a business throwing away a larger quantity wouldnt

 

My authority are proper anal about it, I have even seen thier guys transferring stuff they don't like the look of in to the regular wheelie bin. God knows what they would do If they got a whiff of petrol

Hi all,

 

Aspen cans are made of the same plastic as milk bottles and when fully empty can be put in household or commercial recycling.

 

I would suggest you remove the sleeve / label as most bin men won't know what Aspen is or the type of plastic the cans are made from.

 

Also as stated above if you put a large amount of anything in your household waste it will be declined.

 

I have contacted UK recyclers and after checking they are happy to take the empty cans with the caps/ lids removed.

 

Please contact me direct if you need more help 07568108953 or eddie@aaoil.co.uk

We are mowing yards so have better storage. I thinking about a barrel again. Can someone recommend a decent pump please or is a tap best? Cheers
