Gas bottles

How to dispose of gas bottles safely.

A gas bottle.

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.

  • Safety information

    Gas bottles cannot be placed in your recycling bin at home as they are explosive.

  • Further information

    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.
