Instructions

Dispose of at the Alameda County Household Hazardous Waste (ACHHW) Facility. Can be dropped off at Berkeley Transfer Station for a fee. 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. Old, rusty or unknown cylinders may be taken to a scrap metal company once they have been completely emptied with the valves safely removed. Companies that specialize in gas cylinders offer this service.

Alternatives

Opt for devices and appliances that can be powered by electricity. Consider a refillable propane canister when camping.
