Binning your gas bottle could have explosive results

Council is reminding residents to not put barbecue gas bottles into their wheelie bins.

The call comes after two barbecue gas bottles were found in council’s waste trucks.

Gas bottles have the potential to ignite in council’s waste trucks and cause serious injury to the drivers.

Please dispose of your barbecue gas bottles at council’s Resource Recovery Facility - the Incredable Drop Off Area at the Paget Waste Management Centre or return them to the place of purchase.
