Just One Question: Why Should You Update Your Gas Can?

The EPA says the average American household owns about 2 gas cans – most of them thin plastic. So guess what, they’re releasing VOCs, volatile organic compounds, into the air. If your garage is attached to your house? Well, those VOCs are making their way to you. UCAIR will hold a free gas can exchange April 11th, give them an old and empty one, they’ll give you a new one. But I haven’t been impressed with the newer gas cans. So I have just one question, why should I change out my gas can?


J1Q UCAIR Gas Can Exchange


Exchange your empty, pre-2009 gas can Saturday, April 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the following locations:
