Safely Dispose of Pressurized Tanks & Cannisters
Going camping, hiking or hosting a barbecue this summer? Make sure you safely dispose of pressurized tanks, canisters and aerosols (empty or full), including:
- Bear spray canisters
- Small camping propane tanks
- Butane canisters
- Standard barbecue tanks
- Helium tanks
Take these items to a household hazardous waste drop-off at designated fire stations or City landfills for safe disposal. Do not put these items in your blue, black or green carts.
When put in a cart these items become a safety hazard for your collector and the staff at waste management facilities. Items can also damage collection trucks and sorting equipment.
Visit calgary.ca/hhw to check the list of drop-off locations.
