PROPANE TANKS & OTHER CYLINDERS: Approximately 3000 propane fires and explosions are reported yearly. The Transfer Station does not collect propane tanks because they are pressurized and may explode when compressed.
Before you dispose of your tank consider;
  1. Use the gas completely, and the label has to be visible. 
  2. Contact and bring a tank to your propane supplier for recycling
  3. Bring an empty depressurized used tank to a scrap metal facility for recycling.
  4. Bring it to a local Hazardous Waste Collection Day event for free.
