For Larger Cylinders/Tanks...


Ask the retailer if the cylinder can be returned for recycling or disposal when it’s empty. And please whenever possible, buy refillable, reusable propane tanks. There are a variety of refillable canister sizes on the market.

There are just a few local vendors available to assist with disposal of larger propane canisters at a cost per cylinder – Please call ahead for details.
