Recharge/Recycle Old Fire Extinguisher?

“I was cleaning out our closet and came across a fire extinguisher that is at least five years old, and the pressure gauge says it is in need of a recharge. Since a new fire extinguisher is only $20.00 on Amazon, we will probably just get a new one, but I hate to just throw out the old one. Does anyone know if I can recycle it? Will the DC fire department accept old extinguishers?”
