What to do with
Gas bottles can be refilled for further use and should be returned to the supplier. Please do not place gas cylinders in your dustbin or in the containers at your household waste recycling centre as they may explode if they are crushed.
Many retailers and suppliers of gas bottles will allow you to return your gas bottle once used. They are refilled and used again and again.
For gas cylinders other than Calor Gas, you can ring the LP Gas Association on 08457 626379 for advice. For Calor Gas Bottles, please call 0800 662 663 and they will inform you of where your nearest Calor Gas Direct Outlet is.
You could also contact your local council to see if they accept gas bottles at your local recycling centre. If they do accept them, please ask staff at the recycling centre where they should be left so they can be stored safely before being re-used.
