How Do You Safely Handle a Propane Cylinder?

  • Propane cylinders are portable containers that are generally used in the home. Propane tanks are typically more permanent and have more storage
  • Cylinders must be inspected every 10 years. Markings on the collar of the cylinders can tell you the date of manufacture and inspections since then.
  • Never throw a propane cylinder in the garbage. Always dispose of old cylinders at a municipal transfer station or depot that accepts cylinders. Find out more about how to dispose of propane cylinders in each province.
