Never Dispose of Curbside
CO2 cartridges are hazardous because they are pressurized. Never dispose of them at the curb. Dispose of them as hazardous waste instead.
Keep Away From Heat
A CO2 cartridge is pressurized and may explode if heated, so keep it away from heat and out of direct sunlight in a well-ventilated area.
Alternative Ways to Recycle

Ways to Reuse
Refill Your Cylinders
Some CO2 cylinders, such as those for beverage carbonation or paintball, can be refilled. Contact the manufacturer or your closest retailer to find out how.
