Are unwanted propane tanks crowding your facility?
We developed a proprietary system which evacuates and saves the gas, removes the valve, and renders the tank completely safe for recycling.

Are you throwing your tanks in the regular scrap metal?

Are you turning away tanks from your residents or commercial loads?
We work with all sizes from 1 pound Coleman style to 100 pounders.

Are you unable to handle fire extinguishers?
We safely decommission fire extinguishers.

No need to pay Household Hazardous Waste companies to process your tanks.

No need to wait for someone to pick over your tanks to refurbish the ones they want.
We do not refurbish or retrofit, so you never have to worry about cylinders returning to the retail field, or being filled with other types of gases and used illegally.

No need to include special handling provisions with scrap metal recyclers in your bid specifications regarding used propane cylinders.



"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."
