Propane Tank Recycling

Propane Recycling Options

Remember that a full or nearly full propane cylinder is a fire hazard. If you are going to save your cylinder for Cayuga County's next collection event, we recommend that you use as much of the propane as possible before storing the cylinder.

Finger Lakes Recycling and CEMCO will recycle propane tanks (This information is provided as a service and is not an endorsement by Cayuga County):

For free or a small fee, many retail stores (Walmart, Lowe's, Agway, etc.) that provide propane cylinder refills will trade your obsolete cylinder for a filled cylinder with an OPD.
