Re: Aerosol battery air fresheners

We have 10 of them located in various toilets, the propellent is compressed air so no CFC's are present. However I suppose there is a possibility of an allergic reaction to the fragrance, although I've received no such complaint?

We have 5 around school that are services/changes by PHS. Then we have a few members of staff that have brought in their own. I don't mind the stand alone but have banned the plug in ones.

We have them fitted and a contract with a company called PowerSolve. However, I won't refill them as I believe that they are carcinogenic. If a member of staff wants one refilled, I direct them to my assistant as he is happy to refill them!

CFC's were banned, its to do with the ozone layer. Aerosols no longer contain them so they are ok. We have just started using visionair 24/7 dispensers (battery powered) they neutralise the bad smells as well as fragrancing
