Recycling for most compressed gas & acetylene cylinders

Cylinder Recyclers helps clients ranging from international gas manufacturers to community recycling centers safely recycle all types of most compressed gas cylinders, as well as identifying most unknown gas cylinders.

The nation’s only resource for acetylene cylinder management.

Spent acetylene cylinders contain as much as six gallons of acetone in a solid binding medium and older cylinders often contain asbestos. Sending those hazards to a landfill is environmentally irresponsible and creates potential liabilities for cylinder owners. Only Cylinder Recyclers lets you safely recycle these resources instead. Through our unique, environmentally-friendly process, we recycle both the acetone residue and the cylinder. Organics are removed from the cylinders under a vacuum, acetone is condensed out and recovered, and cylinders are scrapped and recycled.

For tanks manufactured prior to 1985 , we carefully remove and safely dispose of any asbestos-contaminated core material prior to scrapping and recycling the cylinder eliminating headaches and risks for our customers. Acetylene cylinders prior to 1985 may contain asbestos. But they can be recycled. Ask us!
