What is the most efficient way to take care of expired fire extinguishers? Are they recyclable or can they be refilled?

Expired fire extinguishers can be taken to the City of Lawrence/Douglas County Household Hazardous Waste Facility to be recycled, said Division Chief Eve Tolefree, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical spokeswoman. Directions to the facility will be given when you call 832-3030 to schedule a drop-off appointment. Fire extinguishers can also be serviced or recharged by many fire and safety equipment companies, Tolefree said.
