Hanover County residents can now drop off one-pound propane containers for no charge at any of the County’s six solid waste service convenience centers during regular business hours.
One-pound propane tanks are the kind that are generally used with outdoor lanterns, small grills and similar products.
The tanks will be collected by the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority through a contract with Massie, Wood and West.
“This is an exciting program that extends our recycling opportunities while improving safety,” said Steve Chidsey, Director of Public Works Operations. Previously, the County had only been able to recycle 20-pound tanks.
Hanover’s solid waste service convenience centers are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week, except for official holidays.
