Have empty gas cylinders left over from your last camping trip or tailgate party and unsure how to dispose of them? You can now bring them to the SMaRT Station® for recycling.
A new pilot program makes dropping off empty, one-pound propane cylinders convenient for residents and keeps them from being disposed improperly in the trash.
Note: If thrown in the trash, cylinders can explode causing fires and putting workers at risk of injury.
Empty Propane Cylinder Drop-off Program
Who: Sunnyvale, Mountain View and Palo Alto residents only (proof of residency is required at the time of the drop-off).
