Tanks 2 You Propane safely disposes of and recycles over 6,000 expired propane tanks a year! Thats nearly 120,000 lbs of steel that gets recycled and repurposed. Tanks 2 You understands the need for recycling in todays 'green' era. Every component of the cylinder is recycled. We do not "requalify or recertify" any cylinders, all cylinders are destroyed and sent to the metal recycling plant.
Expired propane tanks are considered hazardous material whether they have gas in them or not. Many garbage companies do not want to inherit the risk of a hazardous material, thus many do not accept disposal of expired tanks.
There are two ways in which you can dispose of your propane cylinders. You can bring them down to our Norwood facility and drop them off for free. Our Norwood Bottled Gas facility is located at 305 Boston Providence Tpke (south bound side of Rt. 1) in Norwood, MA.
