Do not dispose of gas bottles at home. Take bottles, up to 15kg in size, to your local recycling centre (RC).
Which RC container
Ask staff at the centre who will ensure safe disposal.
Which RC accept this waste
All our recycling centres accept gas bottles.
Gas bottles cannot be placed in your recycling bin at home as they are explosive.
Gas bottles taken to your local RC will be returned to the issuing company and refilled for further use.
You could also...
- return the bottle to the place you purchased it.
- check the name of the gas type on the bottle (for example, Calor). You can then return it to a local dealer of that gas type.
