BUSINESSES:

Commercial haulers are required to dispose of tanks at the Puhi Metals Recycling Facility. Propane Tanks of all sizes are accepted free of charge at the Puhi Metals Facility if  the valve has been removed so that it can be visually determined that there are absolutely no fluids contained within the cylinder. Note - do not attempt to remove valves yourself. Valve removal should be conducted by trained professionals only. Puhi Metals will accept tanks with valves for a fee.
