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). Cylinders that have no labeling, damaged labeling, or incorrect labeling create problems for companies and agencies that are tasked with properly managing compressed gas cylinders. Please remember to protect the labels on gas cylinders to ensure their proper management and disposal.

This guidance is to assist households and businesses on proper management of compressed gas cylinders. Compressed gas cylinders can be hazardous due to the gases and pressure inside the cylinder and must be properly disposed by professionals.

Many vendors will allow you to return the gas cylinder to them directly. Information on the vendor should be available directly on the cylinder. If you cannot find this information, or if they do not accept the empty cylinder, please see our list of drop off locations below.
