Social distancing closed down restaurants in Buffalo and Rochester earlier this year, driving many of us to use our propane outdoor grills more than usual. As a result, you might find yourself with a few more empty 20-lb. propane barbecue cylinders than you normally have as summer 2020 winds down, some of which may no longer safe to use.
If you have empty propane tanks laying around your backyard (remember, never inside your home or attached garage for safety reasons!), it’s a good idea to have them refilled or recycled before the cooler weather arrives here in western New York.
Remember: discarding propane cylinders with your regular trash is dangerous – and illegal!
While you may find some private recycling companies that will take your old single use or refillable propane grill cylinders, the easiest and safest way to handle propane tank disposal in Buffalo and Rochester, NY is to bring your propane tank to one of our convenient locations and let us do it for you.
When transporting your tank, please observe the following propane safety procedures:
If you need your propane tank re-certified (which is required once your tank reaches its tenth year in use and every five years after that), we can do that, too.
