Responsible Grill Recycling/Disposal
Proper maintenance and timely replacement of key parts will extend the life of your grill. When the time comes to dispose of your old grill, Char-Broil encourages a responsible approach that will yield safe and environmental friendly results.
Before you dispose of an old grill, be sure to clean it as thoroughly as possible of all food debris. The following guidelines will help you determine how best to discard it.
GRILL BODY: The body of a Char-Broil grill is primarily constructed with recyclable materials including steel, stainless steel and aluminum. Scrap metal dealers can dispose of and sell these raw materials that will eventually be used to make a new grill or other metal product.
GRILL LID: If the grill lid has plastic handles, it cannot be recycled and should be removed and disposed of in the standard domestic garbage waste disposal system.
SIDE SHELVES: Remove any plastic side shelves and check them for a recycling mark. If the side shelves are recyclable, they can be recycled with other plastic recyclables. If no recycling mark is found, they should be disposed of in the standard domestic garbage waste disposal system.
HOSE: Cut off the black hose that runs from the tank connector to the burners and dispose of it in the standard domestic garbage waste disposal system. It cannot be recycled.
GAS VALVES: Gas valves are made of brass or aluminum and can be removed and recycled separately. Most plastic wheels can be recycled with other recyclable plastic products.
CONTROL KNOBS: The gas control knobs are recyclable if they are made of black plastic. If they are metal plated, they should be disposed of in the standard domestic garbage waste disposal system.
ELECTRONICS: Any electronics should be removed and disposed of as with other consumer electronics.
LP TANKS: LP tanks are typically reusable through various LP tank exchange programs. If you are disposing of a tank, it should be given to a propane gas dealer for recycling or disposal. Due to residual gas, a scrap metal dealer cannot safely dispose of LP tanks.
