Fire extinguishers

Fire extinguishers up to 2kg in size from a household will be accepted at recycling centres.

Fire extinguishers larger than 2kg (such as 4kg/9litres) are not domestic fire extinguishers and originate from businesses. If you have one of these cylinders and are a business you should contact the cylinder supplier to arrange its disposal. If you are a householder and one has been left in your garage, shed etc the cylinder is still a business waste (commercial waste) and you will need to contact a fire extinguisher supplier and pay for its removal and disposal yourself.
