Propane Tanks


Propane Tanks


If your municipal recycling center does not accept propane tanks, contact a local propane distributor for proper disposal or exchange of your propane tank. Ask your local Wal-Mart or Home Depot about their trade-in policy. Propane tanks are not accepted at the county's recycling centers. However, they are accepted at the County's Household Hazardous Waste Disposal programs that are held throughout the year. Go to www.co.ocean.nj.us/recycle to get the locations and schedule for this year.

Another option would be to take your standard 20 lb. tanks to any "Blue Rhino" location. Blue Rhino will collect the tank and reburbish it if possible. If the tank does not meet their safety and quality standards they will recycle the tank. There is no charge to participate in their program. To find a Blue Rhino location nearest you go to http://www.bluerhino.com Before you drop it off, write "RECYCLE" on the tank.
