    Where to dispose propane tanks

    I have a few portable camping propane tanks I've used for my grill that are stock piling on the patio. Just curious if anyone knows an area in the metro (preferibly Ankeny) where you can get rid of them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Where to dispose propane tanks

    Not sure if it was safe or not... I left a box of them out for junk day. And they did pick them up. Other then that... I have no idea unless you need to take a trip to a landfill with other stuff.

    You can recycle them in the "not paper" bin here in the CR area.

    Re: Where to dispose propane tanks

    From metro waste authority website. Not sure if these are the big 20lbs tanks or the smaller portable tanks.

    Propane Tanks:
    Contact Ferrell Gas at 515-266-1175 or Blue Rhino at 1-800-258-7466.

    Well... Not sure about Ankeny.. But most communities have a week where you can get rid of all your junk and they will pick it up for free.

    Norwalk had their's last week. We got rid of a sofa, washer and dryer, and a nordic trak for free. So if you see a bunch of junk sitting in people yards out by the curb. Might as well throw your stuff on too...

    Take them to a propane company. A real one, the type that has delivery trucks, not the ones at Kum and Go.

    Start a big bonfire, open the valves and throw them on.

    Re: Where to dispose propane tanks

    I use the 20lb and larger ones to store air. Purge them with nitrogen and then I have a nice, portable buffer tank for my air compressor.

    Junk day? What if I set my new puppy out, will they take care of his junk? How about junk day at the 1st football game this fall?

    No You cannot. Call the Linn Area Solid Waste Association and they will have you take it to the hazardous materials disposal for a fee. DO no put them in the recycling as someone could get hurt pretty badly when the canister goes through a baler.

    In DSM area call MWA, they should have a hazmat disposal center and will take it for a fee.

    Yep. Tomorrow morning you can watch as all the stuff disappears before the junk truck even shows.

    If you can make the trip. I'd say here is a good place to dispose of any waste/hazardous materials:

    Re: Where to dispose propane tanks

    I have a gadget that I use to connect the little Coleman tanks to a larger 20# cylinder to refill them at a much lower cost.
