Old CO2 tanks: What to do?

Honestly I don't know.

Over the years I've bought a lot of bulk "lots" of gear so that I could part it out or get one piece and get rid of the rest. In the process of doing that I have accumulated a whole bundle of CO2 tanks that I don't need.

What do I do with them? Do people want these? Do I recycle them? If so how? Is it worth my while? Can I legally throw them away if the answer to the above is no?

cut them in half. combine with spent 12 grams (as the knocker) to make wonderfully whimsical and annoying wind chimes.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

iirc if you can separate the valve from the main body you will get more from recycling. Body is aluminum and valve is brass.

I have 4 sitting around my house. I use em as an odd weight to hold things down if I need to.

Pull the valves and get scrap value. As mentioned, you'll do better to separate for brass and aluminum. And most are high quality aluminum, don't let them give you sheet price, gotta haggle

The recycling place around here requires you to take the valves off.

If they're old-style valves, without the venting groove cut down the threaded portion, they're worth keeping for those of us who still use siphon tanks. The new style with the vent don't work for siphons, and it's getting hard to find the old style.

Some of my siphons have been rechrono'd 4 times. The guy always says, "wouldnt it be cheaper to just get a new one?".

Well, they havnt sold them new in 20 years. And because of the valve situation, its not as easy to build them..... so, I'll just rechrono, as crazy as it sounds.
