    Hi

    I know this is an old thread, came across it in a search

    I have a carrier bag full of expire co2 capsules. I put them in my recycling bin a couple of time but on both occasions they weren't taken

    So what are they made of, and what should I do with them

    Thanks

    David

    Question Location of the Greyhound Club

    I've heard a lot about the Greyhound gun club and would like to pay it a visit with a view to becoming a member. I've tried clicking on the link on your post, but keep getting 'web address not available'. Could you post some info relating to the location and membership? Both my wife and I are airgunners - and are looking for an additional club where we could shoot during the week as we are retired. From what I've gathered, the Greyhound might be ideal for us.

    Many thanks, Ikarma

    What to do with empty Co2 Capsules

    I'll have to find out what happens to empty CO2 capsules at our club. There always seems to be a lot of them either lying around or in various containers. It always appeared a shame that they couldn't be recycled for refilling for re-use but I would imagine the cost would be prohibitive?

    Incidentally, I wonder why there is such a significant difference in price between brands? Steel and CO2 prices & manufacturing costs must be about the same - I guess that they are probably all made in China?

    Why can't they be re-used? Surely that would be the best use of them. I have no objections of the cash going to a charity, but won't the firms who produce them not pay to have them back for refilling? That way they are being re-used and the money raised goes to the charities. It would be cheaper than having them melted down, reproduced, replated before refilling!

    I have dozens of expended co2 and saving them with a view to selling them for scrap.Any funds will go to "help the hero's" because this is a charity close to my heart as a former serving soldier myself.

    I have an awful lot of lead pellets that I get from my pellet catcher, I'm going to melt it and take that to the scrapyard, a few bob from that would help, though I'll give it to either the RBL or RAFA. I've also quite a few co2 empties as well.

    Sounds like a great idea, where do I take my used co2 capsules to get them recycled?

    Did the melting down of old pellets work in terms of getting a few quid from the scrap yard?

    The easiest way imho is to have a recycle collection box in the shop
    where you get them in the first place.
    If the shops are willing to let them be donated to a charity good for them,
    if not,at least they are being reused as something.

    Most supermarkets have a dead battery drop off box!

    CO2 Cartridge

    If you have a few of these EMPTY laying about then try this, drill a small hole through them halfway down, squash the top in the vice, squash the bottom in the vice. This leaves the bit you have drilled still partly open, feed them onto a wire clothes hangar or string them up, hey presto cracking spinners to practice on.
    Live long, Die Oblong, but not for a long time yet.

    The whole world smiles in the same language.

    CO2 cylinders

    A friend of mine drilled small holes in a wood block to hold them upright and uses them as targets.

    aparantly they are worth 2.5p each.

    so what do you think??
    any ideas for a charity? I would have thought help for heroes would be as good as any.
