How do I dispose of my fire extinguisher?

Stow Fire Department does not accept fire extinguishers for disposal.

Recycle the extinguisher if the canister is empty. If an extinguisher is empty, you can simply throw them out with your recycling trash since they no longer contain hazardous materials. You may want to still check with your local recycling company about the best way to recycle the canister.

You can take the extinguisher to the hazardous waste disposal facility located at 1201 Graham Road Stow, OH on Thursdays from 2 to 7 pm. Ask about hazard types and any restrictions before you go.
