    Go outdoors have always been relaxed about exchanging different sized bottles, might be worth trying a swap there ?

    Yes our local council tip always has a collection of gas bottles of every conceivable shape, make and size.
    They sell them for a fiver each which they tell me goes into the tea kitty.

    I think it is against the law to sell Calor gas bottles----They are property of Calor ,,not yours

    yes.. always has been the case, but it hasn't stopped people selling them or giving them away ..
    never heard of anyone being prosecuted for selling a Calor bottle

    The Council site can't officially accept them for disposal.. or sell them.. but it does go on..

    I go into our local recycling dump and they have a gas cylinder cage there that has loads of various cylinders of all sizes, I always look in it as ONE DAY a Gaslow / Gasit bottle, WILL turn up and I will obtain it/them for a small consideration. The bottles get sent back to calor etc sometime in the future so they can hire them out again at profit.

    If you do see anything you fancy , don't ask , just take it . our tip will not allow the public to remove anything from site . I was with my father in law and the tools , cycles and other metals being thrown away was criminal , but they were adamant we couldn't take them . recycling centre my ar** !

    If you don't get sorted by Chester we will have one there, I am hoping to get my Gaslow kit fitted while there, then my Calor will be redundant, although I will take a 6kg off you to keep as a spare (y)

    If your local tip employees take money for removal of rubbish , report them to their superiors .

    Reporting somebody for breaking the rules of their employment isn't being a grass . sadly its not as simple as giving somebody a couple of quid for tea bags for helping you out .
    You wouldn't get away with calling somebody a grass to their face where I live , so please don't do it on a forum , in jest or otherwise .

    I will assume you are having a joke with me...

    or maybe you haven't had time to "tune in" to the nature of Motorhome Fun.

    Funsters don't usually tell each other what they can or can not post...
