Propane, also called LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) or LP gas, is a liquid fuel stored under pressure. Propane is flammable when mixed with air and can be ignited by many sources, including open flames, smoking materials, electrical sparks and static electricity.

Please do not dispose of these tanks in curbside recycling or trash carts.  Bring them to any of the following safe disposal options.

For more information on using, storing and transporting propane tanks, visit the Michigan Propane Gas Association.
