Other Recycling Programs
This program was created in response to a change in
regulations regarding propane tanks that went into effect in
2002. Safety standards for tanks now require a
new valve style to help prevent the accidental overfilling of
tanks. Tanks without the overfill protection device
cannot be legally refilled.
Tanks sized from 4 to 40-pounds capacity were affected by
the regulation. This includes the 20-pound tanks commonly
used for gas grills. Aware that this change could
result in a large number of unwanted or unfillable tanks, CVWMA
took steps to create a recycling and disposal program to meet this
Even supposedly empty tanks contain residual
amounts of propane, a hazardous material that should be handled
with care. Tanks collected from citizens in the CVWMA
program are either retrofitted and placed back into service, or
sold for scrap metal.
