Recycling Tips

  • When returning compressed gas cylinders to the vendor, remove the gas connections, replace cylinder caps and return cylinders to suppliers by calling NC State Central Stores at (919) 515-2197
  • Lecture bottles are generally not returnable to the vendor and may need to be disposed of as hazardous waste through Environmental Health & Safety
  • Environmental Health & Safety recommends not using lecture bottles due to high disposal costs
  • Non-regulated cylinders (such as helium and calibration gasses) can be recycled at our Dearstyne Convenience Site to be collected for scrap metal if they are depressurized and have their valve removed.
