Why recycle your empty or unwanted compressed gas?

The propane industry estimates that 40M one-pound propane tanks are sold in North America annually. And because they’re marketed as “disposable,” people throw them out or leave them behind in national parks. The trouble is that residual gas remains in these canisters, which can spark fires and explosions in parks and waste handling facilities.
