For cylinders other than bbq grill propane, (i.e. oxygen canisters, RV propane tanks), call the manufacturer or distributor on the canister, or contact a medical supply company for take back or refill programs. Refillable 1 lb camping propane cylinders are now available locally for purchase & refill.

Companies that specialize in gas cylinders offer this service.
