In North America, 40 million disposable one-pound propane cylinders are used and tossed out each year with an estimated four million in California alone!


Empty cylinders are often disposed of improperly in landfills, dumpsters, household trash, campsites, on the roadside or in recycling containers and proper recycling is costly. When “empty,” disposable cylinders often still contain a small amount of gas, posing a danger to sanitation and parks workers due to the risk of explosions and resulting fires.


Refillable cylinders! Refillables save money and hassle, they cost from $1.99 to $3.99 to refill (depending on location) because you only pay for the gas and filling service, not the container, they last up to 12 years and can be refilled hundreds of times.
