Recycle CO2 cartridges?(6 posts)

I was riding in a park near dusk last week when I ran over a CO2 cartridge someone had discarded in the road.

I'm wondering what all the CO2 pump users do with their cartridges. Can you recycle them?
they can be recycled but i'm not sure where/how/who...Haiku d'état

I have been wondering about this as well. I could not find anything on the web, but I think it would be well advised to contact the cartridge manufacturer and see what information they have to offer. I'll let you know if I come up with anything.

I asked my LBS about this and was told that since they can't be refilled, there's no recycling. I don't believe that they're the right kind of metal for regular recycling either. Does anyone know what the casing is made of?? The road side is definately not the proper place to dispose of ones trash. I hate when people do this. It was an extra 1/4 ounce that the person was carrying before, what did they gain by leaving it behind, I wonder???

Probally can't recycle them, but you can at least stick them in your pocket until you see a trash can.

so put them in with your aluminum and "tin" cans.
I've seen a number on the roadside rusting away, and around here, you can never tell if they're from cyclists or bb guns (ah, the joys of Pennsyltucky).
Hope the cart. didn't do any damage when you hit it.
