Propane Cylinder Disposal

Propane cylinders and bottles of all sizes will eventually reach the end of their useful life. Because cylinders are portable and people move them exponentially more than bulk LP Gas tanks, their useful life is often much shorter. Proper disposal of a cylinder is necessary when it is no longer ideal for service.

Texas Propane will inform you if your tank is no longer ideal for service. We take the proper steps to ensure we safely dispose of the bottle. For more information or guidance about cylinder disposal, contact us here at Texas Propane.

Additionally, once all of the propane is safely transferred to another tank and the cylinder is depressurized, all of the valves and fittings are removed and the tank is scrapped. Often times, tank connections, valves and gauges from unusable tanks that are discarded have little or no value and are scrapped as well.

Unlicensed individuals attempting to remove gas from a cylinder or any propane cylinder or any propane tank prior to disposal can result in fire, injury or death.
