Pressurised Cylinder Recycling & Recovery


Return or recycle your Pressurised Cylinders

Our pressurised cylinder recycling and recovery services are equipped to degass, treat and recycle or
repatriate your pressurised cylinders, regardless of the condition they may currently be in.


How we can help

It is uncommonly known where to recycle gas cylinders, hence we’re on hand to point you in the right direction. At our dedicated cylinder recycling facilities, we have the technology and expertise to process your gas cylinders and safely remove and treat the contents to ensure full compliance with all statutory and environmental requirements.

Our nationwide collection service uses the largest fleet of specialist collection vehicles to deliver your cylinders to our specialist facility and guarantee you meet all your obligations.

Before processing at the plant, our technical teams review each consignment, so the contents can be carefully extracted in a controlled environment. The gases are either processed through Veolia’s licensed chemical treatment plant, taken for High-Temperature Incineration (HTI), or safely destroyed in-house. Empty cylinders are then repatriated to the original supplier, or if they cannot be returned, recycled. We can also repatriate cylinders owned by gas manufacturers and distributors.
