Gas bottles

Empty gas bottles and fire extinguishers should be returned to the original supplier or manufacturer wherever possible (the manufacturer is normally identified on the side of bottle).

If the manufacturer is identified on the bottle some recycling centres accept them for a charge (see our commercial waste page).

We will no longer be accepting gas bottles or cylinders marked “BOC” or “British Oxygen Company” at any of our centres. These must be processed by your local BOC depot.

For further advice and information on gas bottles please visit our A to Z of recycling page.

Please note that not all waste types are accepted at all recycling centres so please use our what you can take and where (map) to check which recycling centre you can take your items to.
