Compressed gas

Compressed gas cylinder management is an ongoing concern for public agencies, hazardous waste generators (Including households), hazardous waste transporters, and Transportation, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs). Ongoing issues with discovery of cylinders in household hazardous waste, household garbage, sites with large accumulations of cylinders of varying types with no labeling, damaged labeling, or incorrect labeling creates problems for companies and agencies to properly manage compressed gas cylinders.

This guidance is to assist businesses on proper management of compressed gas cylinders. Compressed gas cylinders must be properly managed, even before they are wastes. When the cylinders or the contents within them become wastes, then they come under potential regulation as hazardous waste, depending on the characteristics of the gases that are contained within them. Contained within this guidance are references from U.S. EPA that may assist in management of compressed gas cylinders.
