Hello guys

Does anyone know how I can dispose of old refrigerant bottles (r22)? Does the council accept them or will suppliers take them. Have taken them of a friend of mine who has retired, they are years old so no idea where he got them from !:confused:

Try your wholesaler first.

If they are definitely empty then if you remove the valves you should be able to take them to your local metal recycling centre (scrap merchant).
