Safely dispose of pressurized tanks and canisters

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 to check the list of drop-off locations.
