Never place propane tanks in recycling bins 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 recomend 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.
