One-pound propane gas cylinders only
Do not throw tanks or cylinders in the trash, and do not attempt to puncture the cylinder.
Because gas cylinders and tanks contain a compressed gas, if they are thrown in the trash they can explode and cause injury to solid waste workers. Although a tank may seem empty, a small amount of explosive gas remains even when it no longer supports a flame.
No cylinders or tanks larger than one-pound.
No cylinders or tanks used for business purposes, including home businesses and property managers.
Empty metal tanks may be taken to a scrap metal recycler.
Empty plastic tanks should be brought to a landfill or transfer station.
