LPG Cylinder Disposal

Damaged, Rusted, Old, Expired LPG Cylinders are not permitted to be disposed in the general trash. Never place any Gas Cylinder of any size with your recycling. The compressed gas makes them hazardous. Empty LPG Cylinders still contain enough flammable gas to cause an explosion, so you must be very careful with them.
It is essential to properly dispose of old gas cylinders, so they do not injure you or sanitation workers. Never attempt to puncture or open the valve, of an LPG Cylinder. Good examples are you Gas BBQ Cylinders. These come in various sizes.

Dispose them off for Free at any one of our branches
