compressed gas cylinders

State law requires all loads be covered before transport.

Compressed gas cylinders, such as those for a camp stove or grill, are considered scrap metal. The tanks have to be completely empty. 

You may either call ahead to a Scrap Metal Dealer or call the operations manager at the MCSWD to see if yours are eligible to be recycled for FREE. Get in touch with operations by calling 715-551-5864. 

While there are numerous online instructions on refilling 1 lb/DOT39 propane tanks we strongly encourage you to NEVER do this. Watch the video below for details on the dangers of refilling these tanks.
