Fire extinguishers contain different substances which are used to put out fires, these substances can be toxic to the environment and so have to be removed from the extinguisher and disposed off in the correct manner (ABC Dry Powder is turned into fertilizer).  Once emptied the remaining cylinder is dismantled and can then be recycled using standard metal recycling techniques. Other materials such as plastics and rubber are also recycled meaning that almost 100% of extinguishers that have reached the end of their life can be recycled.

 

Remember if you allow the removal of old fire extinguishers from your procession by person or company who does not hold a valid waste license, you as the original extinguisher owner could be prosecuted for not using a license holder.  Old and redundant fire extinguishers can be a potential threat to persons, buildings and the environment, dispose of them correctly and ethically.

 

London And Home Counties Fire Protection have a waste carriers license that can be verified from the  Environmental Agencies Website

Waste Management

London And Home Counties Fire consider the best option, both for our business and the environment, to keep our waste production  as low as reasonably possible.
