We can dispose of refrigerant in every package size, from small cylinders to drums and tankers.

We have a UK-wide delivery and collection service and over 70 trade outlets across the country.

We also provide a stress-free administration service when it comes to consignment note requirements.

When Recovering Refrigerants


  • fully complete the consignment note prior to collection
  • put the right product in the right cylinder
  • identity that the cylinder you are using is suitable for that refrigerant
  • use the right recovery equipment
  • ensure the recovery equipment is clean and free of contaminants


  • mix refrigerants, especially if you are requiring a credit
  • overfill cylinders as this may incur penalties.  Please note: suppliers are obliged to notify the Environment Agency of any companies continuing this dangerous practice

Recovery cylinders

Recovery cylinders are used when the refrigerant in a system is no longer required and needs returning for reclamation or destruction.

Please note:  Details of our larger drum packages are available on request.

Hydrocarbon and ammonia recovery

Special cylinders are available for the recovery of the hydrocarbon refrigerants (CARE) and ammonia. 

Please call 0800 02 0800 for further information.  

Decant cylinders

Decant cylinders are suitable when it is necessary to temporarily remove a refrigerant from a system and then reuse the refrigerant.  This usually occurs during mechanical maintenance.

Please note:  BOC's decant cylinders are changing from gold top/black bottom to grey top/black bottom.  Details of our larger drum packages are available on request.
