Propane Tanks (Compressed Gas)

NEVER place in Curbside Recycling or Trash (even if empty)!

Most retail stores that sell 20 LB tanks have a return/exchange program, retailers will normally take tanks from any producer. We recommend using these tanks instead of small, non-refillable tanks.

Non-refillable tanks are harder to dispose of. Check your tank for the 'manufacturer's tag' as a source of contact/disposal information.
