Disposal of tank + ISO another

    One of my tanks failed hydro; how can I safely dispose of it? The dive shop guy said I should drill a hole in it and then try taking it to metal recycling place... Does that sound right?

    Also, anyone have an extra tank they're ready to part with?

    I bought a steel tank once used. It failed hydro. The dive shop took it off my hands.

    While I do like the lamp :) I'm really looking for something more practical to do with it. Like recycle it somewhere or something. I suppose I could have asked if the dive shop would take it...I can ask them if I don't find any other options.

    In the meantime, anyone have one I could take off your hands?

    I think the lamp idea (or, I was thinking about a creative patio planter) is the ultimate re-purposing/recycling idea! However, don't aluminum recycling places pay by the pound? I know people who take aluminum cans for recycling; not sure where. Those weigh almost nothing. A tank, on the other hand...

    I called C&D yesterday; they'll take the tank but only if it's cut in two. Any other suggestions? And don't say, cut it in two.....

    Ok, cut it in three...

    I can probably cut it in two

    You would. I guess it's in your emergency tank-cutting kit, because you never know when you might need that! ;)

    Would it be ok for me to bring you my tank tomorrow and then you could give me back the pieces at the meeting?
