A. Most fire extinguishers are made from steel, which is a recyclable material. If the extinguisher is empty, squeeze the trigger handle to verify that the cylinder is not holding any pressure. Then remove the valve. When this is completed, take the cylinder to a recycling center that processes steel. However, if your extinguisher is partially or completely full, you can have your local fire company discharge the extinguisher for you in a safe manner. Then, remove the top and can take it to a recycling facility. A fire company may even handle the recycling for you.
If it becomes necessary to replace your fire extinguisher, you are not permitted under the law to simply throw it away. Fire extinguishers are designated as hazardous material and need to be disposed of properly.
