Propane Tanks

Propane Tanks


Propane tanks should NEVER be placed in your curbside recycling. Old propane cylinders can be exchanged for free at the store where you purchase your new tank. For more information or an exchange location near you, log onto www.bluerhino.com or www.amerigas.com.

Local businesses that recycle propane tanks include AAA Gas Supply (216.228.4800) and Air Gas Great Lakes (216.241.1696). You may also be able to recycle empty tanks at a local scrap metal yard.


Propane tanks (5#, 20#) from a household grill or stove can be disposed through the District's Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program.

Businesses must contract with a licensed environmental services company for proper disposal or recycling. See our Business Recycling Directory.

Scrap Metal

Scrap Metal


Scrap metal does not go in your curbside recycling bin. Recycle car parts, metal cord and rope, and scrap pieces at a local yard. Appliances can also be recycled at a scrap yard. There may be a small fee to remove Freon from refrigerators, air conditioners and dehumidifiers.

Some communities have a scrap metal drop-off for residents. Check with your city service department.

There are also hauling companies willing to pick up and haul away your scrap items. Earn a rebate for the metal. For a list of scrap metal recyclers, residents and businesses should see our Business Recycling Directory
