Single-Use vs. Reusable Cylinders


Every year, 40 million single-use 1-pound propane cylinders are discarded in North America. Improper disposal of these cylinders leads to costly accidents during waste collection and creates litter in recreational areas. Over 20,000 cylinders per year litter Yosemite National Park alone, posing a risk for wildfires. 

Benefits of reusable cylinders:

  • Reduces millions of pounds of metal packaging waste, reducing the impact on landfills and the environment.
  • Refillable propane cylinders can be used hundreds of times and have a lifespan of up to 12 years.
  • Save money by purchasing the gas, not the packaging.

Using reusables is a form of waste reduction and is better than recycling. It conserves natural resources, saves money, and will help our community reach its Zero Waste and climate protection goals.
