BURGAW – Due to changes in safety and recent changes in recycling guidelines, Pender County Solid Waste District will not accept LP gas tanks.
Pender County Utilities Director Kenny Keel said he anticipates the restriction will be temporary.
“We have taken a large volume of LP gas tanks and at this time we can’t accept more,” said Keel.
In the meantime, Keel suggested residents contact the original provider of the tank for assistance or contact these possible sources of disposal:
- Parker Gas, 7491-B Market St., Wilmington, 28411; Call 910-319-4070
- J.T. Lee Gas Company, 1760 Carolina Beach Rd., Wilmington, 28401; Call 910-763-1651

“We are sorry for the inconvenience,” Keel said.
