I was recently contacted by a friend who had been clearing out a shed and found some refrigerant cylinders. They contacted me and I went to see what they had found. It turned out to be four 13kgs cylinders of R12. The next problem is what to do with them next. The options are pretty limited in that I could hire a large recovery cylinder, pump the R12 over and send it off for reprocessing, with the potential of having to pay for the destruction. Whichever there is going to be some costs involved or... What would be your thoughts or helpful suggestions?
