[ARCHIVED] Free Reusable 1 lb. Propane Cylinders for Yolo County Residents

PRESS RELEASE

City of Woodland

300 First Street


Refuel Your Fun - Reusable 1 lb. Propane Cylinders

Yolo County residents can receive a free reusable 1 lb. propane cylinder when they bring an empty single-use 1 lb. propane cylinder to the Yolo County Propane Cylinder Exchange event on September 21, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Yolo County Central Landfill located at 44090 County Road 28H in Woodland, CA. Limit one per household, while supplies last.

Californians regularly use 1 lb. propane gas cylinders for outdoor grills, heaters, and lighting, and can now save money by buying and refilling reusable 1 lb. propane cylinders. Californians use an estimated four million single-use cylinders each year. When purchasing a single-use 1 lb. propane cylinder, 80% of the cost is for the package. Reusable cylinders can be refilled hundreds of times for up to 10 years.

Propane cylinders are designated by the State of California as Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and are illegal to throw away in the trash. They must be taken to a designated drop-off facility or collection receptacle, costing the Yolo County tax payers to recycle each cylinder. Single-use cylinders that are not taken to the HHW Facility and are disposed of improperly can cause harm to the environment and pose health and safety risks for workers.

Yolo County and the Cities of Davis, West Sacramento, Winters, and Woodland are promoting the ReFuel Your Fun Campaign, which encourages the use of reusable 1 lb. propane cylinders over the costly and wasteful single-use cylinders. The campaign also educates about proper collection and recycling of 1 lb. propane cylinders. For more information about the ReFuel Your Fun Campaign, recycling empty cylinders, and to find more retailers selling reusables and refill services, visit www.ReFuelYourFun.org or call the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC) at 916-706-3420.

This program is funded by a grant from CalRecycle.
