    Where can I dispose of/recycle propane canisters e.g. Coleman lantern propane canisters?

    • http://ktmb.org/ J Merriman

      Sorry for the delay, Dan! I am checking to make sure I give you the correct information.

      • JMerriman

        Ok, I haven’t gotten a really clear answer, but it looks like as long as the pin is broken (showing for sure that the bottle is empty), you can recycle them with regular steel at Waste Management Recycle America stations (Commercial Row and Greg Street). They won’t take them in their trucks, but you should be able to drop them off.

      • http://ktmb.org/ J Merriman

        And sorry again, Dan; we’ve had some trouble with our comments. While you can’t put these in your curbside bin, if you crush the pin (proving the canisters are empty) you should be able to take them to Waste Management Recycle America stations or the other metal recyclers in town.

    I appreciate your web site! H2O Environmental will be helping me properly dispose of my household hazardous waste, and they were very easy to work with!
