Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Where can I dispose of an old bar-b-que propane tank?

ANSWER:
Thank you for using our website.

If you have a 20 lb BBQ tank, please properly dispose of it at the County's weekly Household Hazardous/Electronic Waste Collection events. Please click on the provided link for any upcoming events in or near your area. In addition, the County of Los Angeles has partnered with the City of Los Angeles to allow all residents of Los Angeles County to drop off household hazardous waste at the 6 permanent HHW/E-Waste Collection Centers in the communities of San Pedro, East Los Angeles, West Los Angeles, Los Angeles/Glendale, Playa del Rey, and Sun Valley. Please click on the provided link for more information.

However, if your propane tank is larger than 20 pounds, you need to contact an authorized propane waste hauler listed in the yellow pages or may locate an appropriate recycler on our business recycling website for proper disposal.
