The Problem – Disposables
Every year in North America, 40 million disposable one-pound propane cylinders are used, with over four million in California alone.* Because of limited, expensive recycling options, the empty cylinders are often disposed of improperly in landfills, dumpsters, household trash, campsites, on the roadside or in recycling containers.
The Solution – Refillables
Support ReFuel Your Fun by purchasing, refilling and/or exchanging your one-pound REFILLABLE propane cylinders. The new valves on the refillable one-pound cylinders work exactly the same except they can be refilled and reused hundreds of times for up to 12 years. On the other hand, disposables are costly…not only to the environment but to your pocketbook as well.

While adapters and refill kits are sold in the U.S., we do not endorse refilling 1 lb. propane cylinders at home. It is safe when done by a professional.
