Where to dispose of empty propane canisters?
I have a medium-sized gas grill on my porch, which uses the small, blue (14oz) canisters of propane for fuel. I purchase the fuel canisters at the True Value hardware store on 17th & Corcoran. The store informed me that they do not dispose of the empty canisters, and that the only facility that they were aware accepts them is up in Maryland somewhere outside of the city.
I do not own a vehicle, so driving up to Maryland just to get rid of these empty fuel canisters would be a chore for me. I’d prefer to not just throw them in the trash, does anybody know of a more realistic way to dispose of them here in the city? I have about 20 of them by now and would like to do something with them. Can anybody help?
