What can I do with my empty propane tank?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

Empty refillable and non-refillable propane tanks are accepted at most landfills and transfer stations for recycling as scrap metal. 

Never place a pressurized container in your garbage as they can cause explosions when compacted in collection trucks. For local disposal options, call the RCBC Recycling Hotline or visit the RCBC Recyclepedia.
