That unused fire extinguisher has been sitting in the garage since you replaced it with a newer one. But what do you do with it the old one? Fire extinguishers can be stored around your home for years, but in just a matter of seconds, your fire-suppressant material can be used up, leaving you with an empty fire extinguisher. Whether your extinguisher is filled or empty, never toss it in the garbage!

Return it to your local Municipal Recycling Facility or a collection event in your community. Empty fire extinguishers can be completely recycled – in fact steel is one of the world’s most recycled products and is 100% recyclable.

What's included?
