Propane Tanks

DANGER!! NEVER PLACE PROPANE TANKS IN RECYCLING BINS or TRASH (even if empty)!

Tank manufacturers recommend that consumers return unusable propane tanks to a local distributor. Please check your tank for the 'manufacturer's tag' as a source of contact/disposal information.

We recommend considering alternatives to small, non-refillable propane cylinders due to the difficulty in disposal of these items.

Please view the Wisconsin Propane Gas Association webpage for safety and disposal information.

The following dealers dispose of old propane tanks; some take empty tanks only. Please check with companies for fees and/or changes in their policy.
