Does anyone know if you can recycle an old fire extinguisher locally?
Thanks!

If it is a Kiddie and is on the recall list - you may be able to send that one in and have them send you a new one - all free.

Thanks. It is a kidde. I didn’t know there is a recall. Also we might be able to get it recharged? The gauge says recharge.

It is not on the recall list. But if anyone knows where to get it recharged please let me know! I think it is OK actually but needs servicing.

I looked into recharging recently and found that the cost was more than the cost of a new fire extinguisher. I used mine to practice on putting out a fire, a worthwhile effort. Then I trashed the non-pressurized metal shell.

I think the recycling center on Rooney Road would take them. Fire extinguishers aren't listed on the website but you could give them a call. www.rooneyroadrecycling.org
