Hazardous Waste Disposal Information

A cylinder is considered “RCRA empty” when all material has been removed from the cylinder under normal charge, and contains only residue below the dip tube.

To return an empty cylinder contact FMC’s Customer Service at 1-800-362-2548, for a Return Authorization Number.

If cylinders contain material, please contact a licensed hazardous waste disposal company for cylinder pick up and transport to the designated disposal site.

Your company is responsible for disposal costs and arranging for material disposal.
