Gas Cylinders Recycling Hotline

Pressurised gas cylinders cannot be disposed of in garbage trucks or at landfills, as they present a danger when compacted. Therefore they must be collected separately.

Cylinders can be refilled many times in their life. Options for refilling or safe disposal include:

Kwik Gas Cylinder Exchange Service
This is a national cylinder swap service, where you swap your empty cylinder for a new or refurbished filled one. Retail locations are across Australia in selected service stations such as Quix, Caltex, Mobil, Shell and BP outlets, Bunnings Warehouse and others including caravan parks and convenience stores.

Swap'n'Go
Swap any Large, Medium or Camper BBQ Gas Bottle at your local centre. Located at participating Caltex, Mobil, BP, Shell, Kennards Hire, Mitre10 and BOC outlets.

BOC / CIG, Matheson, Linde, GasTech, Air Liquide, LAA or Liquid Air cylinders should be returned to the manufacturer so that no further rental will be charged to the customer.

Diving tanks should be returned to the manufacturer, most likely via dive centres or re-fillers.

Household type gas cylinders (eg: LPG, fire extinguishers, CFC, small size industrial cylinders) may be accepted in household chemical collections in your area.

Household type gas cylinders are also accepted at the following facilities in the Australian Capital Territory area:

  1. Drop off Facility - Mugga Lane Resource Management Facility
