Empty spray cans are recyclable. However, they can only be recycled if they are totally empty. Trying to refill a can with new chemicals while it still has some residue might cause unwanted reactions that may lead to accidents.
To make sure the can doesn’t have any residue, spray out the content on a rag and hold the nozzle until you stop hearing any sound or even air. Once you are sure the can is totally empty, you are now ready to refill it with new content.
