Marlborough's rubbish removal contractor did not take my propane tank. Why?

The contractor is not allowed to pick-up items that are hazardous. The tank still contains some product and is a serious fire/explosion hazard if handles improperly.

Take the tank to the City’s Waste facility for proper disposal. Do not put the tank in a rubbish container or dumpster where fire or crushing may occur. A tank rupture could cause serious injury.
