Empty gas canister?

It’s important that you return them to your supplier.

Gas canisters are potentially hazardous and should not be put in your rubbish bin. It’s best to check with the company you bought it from as they should be able to refill or dispose of it for you.

Never put any of these in the residual/black waste bin
