  • Disposal of Grill Gas Cylinders:
  • With the recently effective new rules on the required equipment on grill cylinders, many people are looking for ways to get rid of their old cylinders. This article will first explain what you should not do, then will give as many suggestions as we can, and then explain the background for the actions.
  • What you should NOT do:
  • Do not abandon a cylinder. If you do so, the city or county will likely incur a significant disposal fee. They will have to call in the hazardous material disposal team to deal with the abandoned cylinder.
  • Do not put your cylinder into a dumpster or trash can. It results in the same disposal fee problem. It can also pose a serious safety concern if the trash truck compacts its load, as it could crush and rupture the cylinder, releasing the rest of the propane.
  • Do not cut up your cylinder unless you know what you are doing. Even though the cylinder won't run your grill anymore, it still contains propane and can seriously burn you, or even explode, if you provide a source of ignition, such as cutting steel with steel.
  • What you should do:
  • 1.Consider exchanging your cylinder for one with the new equipment.
  • 2.If you already have your new cylinder, you may be able take your old cylinder to one of the larger exchange locations and give it to them.
  • 3.Check with your local propane company. Some of them will take your old cylinder and send off several at a time for refurbishment and reuse.
  • 4.Check back here regularly. We are working with the industry to come up with more options for you on what to do with old cylinders.
  • The reason behind the requirements
  • Most of our requirements are based on National Fire Protection Association standard 58 (NFPA 58), the LP-Gas Code. There is a requirement there that all new cylinders of propane capacities from 4 to 40 pounds must have an overfill prevention device (OPD). This has been in effect for a couple of years.
  • There is also a requirement that no cylinder in the same size range may be filled after March 31, 2002, if it does not have an OPD. Therefore, many cylinders became obsolete on April 1, 2002.
