If at all possible, compressed gas cylinders should be returned to the original manufacturer or distributor. Often there are rental charges that the department will continue to pay until the cylinder is returned. If cylinders are unable to be returned (e.g., lecture bottles), then they should be submitted to HSRM for proper disposal. Aerosol cans should be collected and submitted to HSRM for proper disposal.
