Cylinder Disposal

Cylinder Collection

How can I dispose of my old gas cylinder?

Empty or redundant gas bottles should normally be taken back to the company or organisation that originally supplied you. On production of the original hire agreement you may be entitled to a refund of part of your original deposit. If you are unsure as to which gas stockist the bottle originally came from then please contact the supplier/manufacturer of the bottle which can usually be identified on it. UK LPG provide a list of contacts for cylinder disposal which you can find on theUK LPG website.

Gas Bottle recycling

Recycling your gas bottle

Gas bottles can also be recycled by your local authority, household recycling or registered waste carrier. It is worth remembering that gas bottles remain the property of the gas company whose logo/name is on the bottle. As most gas stockists are able to take your old cylinder back, we recommend that, in the first instance, you call the company you originally bought the bottle from. You can easily find LPG gas stockists in your area here. When taking your cylinder/bottle to your local recycling centre you should look out for the gas bottles icon on their recycling board.

How are gas bottles recycled?

When a gas bottle is recycled any product left inside is recovered and reused as a fuel. Most gas bottles are made from steel and the remainder of the bottle will be recycled as scrap metal.
