We reduce waste and keep your facility safe from the potential hazards of discarded propane tanks.

Accepting only empty tanks encourages people to improperly dispose of their tank(s) or release unacceptable amounts of propane into the atmosphere.

In addition, most scrap metal dealers are not satisfied just having the valves removed, and prefer tanks to have more than one opening or be cut in half to ensure complete gas expulsion.

Propane tanks are not accepted in curbside recycling.
Use us in conjunction with your HHW programs.
If your county or retailer doesn't accept used propane tanks, ask them to contact us.

We collect all types of unwanted and discarded propane tanks. Especially 20 pound gas grill and one pound bottles from disposal and recycling locations including:

  • Landfills
  • Waste to Energy Facilities
  • Transfer Stations
  • Refilling Centers
  • Propane Dealers
  • RV Centers
  • Campgrounds
  • Marinas
  • Recycling Coordinators
  • Retailers
  • Scrap yards
  • Automobile and truck salvage yards



"1-800-GOT-JUNK? in Baltimore has used Protank (now Safety Tank of Maryland) for all of our propane tank recycling needs for several years. We love the fact that Protank is committed to recycling the residual gas as well as the cylinders themselves. Their service is always top notch and they are a great partner for us to work with."
