How can I dispose of a gas tank?

If it is a propane tank, please return it to store where it was purchased (most commonly, Lowe’s or Home Depot). Propane tanks up are also accepted at the following locations: 

Orange County Landfill (tanks up to 100 lbs.) 

5901 Young Pine Road Orlando, FL 32829 

(407) 836-6601 Open daily, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm 

McLeod Road Transfer Station (tanks up to 20 lbs.) 

5000 L. B. McLeod Road Orlando, FL 32811 

(407) 245-0931 Days and hours vary; please call ahead 

If it is a helium tank, the City does collect empty tanks. Please break off the valve to indicate that it is empty.
