Summer is going by us quickly, and as we head into September you may find that your propane tank is reaching the end of its long life (assuming, of course, that it can’t be refilled and used again safely – contact us to learn more).
Just remember: since propane is a flammable material, tanks containing propane cannot be discarded with your regular trash! Instead, they must be properly recycled.
To recycle your single-use or refillable grill tanks in Pennsylvania – including large grilling propane tanks, medium-sized tanks used for camping stoves, etc. – contact your local household hazardous waste (HHW) collection program and ask if they will accept single-use or refillable propane cylinders. To view a list of HHW collections in PA, please visit the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Programs page at PA.gov. If that doesn’t work, contact us – we will help you figure it out.
You can find instructions for small propane tanks used for camp lights and smaller stoves here.
