Helium Tanks

Typically – we see questions on helium tanks in association with the red/pink BalloonTime tanks.  Steps for disposing of these are:

  • Fully open green valve and push down on nozzle until tank is empty (hissing sound will stop).
  • Unscrew white valve nut.  Remove and discard.
  • Use hammer and flat head screwdriver to lift and peel back the small disc.  Remove disc.
  • Circle the open hole and write EMPTY on the tank.
  • Dispose of as scrap metal (not in a recycling bin/dumpster)

*Additionally, there is a video available on their website at: https://www.balloontime.com/resources/recycle-or-store/
