Save time spent with on-site cylinder remediation and reduce costs of hazardous waste disposal in just three easy steps with Linde’s STRIP AND SHIP™ cylinder return program. Read more about how it works.

Today’s businesses are highly eco-conscious. There’s a growing desire to reduce our ecological footprint, and recycling is one of the best ways to do our part for the environment – this includes preventing waste surrounding the use of calibration gas cylinders. With millions of cylinders being used each year, the number of single-use disposable calibration gas cylinders is rising as well, resulting in more hazardous waste that must be dealt with through costly internal remediation processes or companies and services that handle it. 

Linde’s STRIP & SHIP™ Program 

Taking a more sustainable approach to cylinder management can help you reduce your business’ environmental footprint, save disposal costs and reduce liability risks. That’s what Linde’s STRIP AND SHIP program was designed to do – no more piles of empty cylinders, no onsite cylinder remediation by your employees and no waste disposal costs. Our patented STRIP & SHIP™ cylinder return program utilizes our Returnable (RT) and High-Capacity Returnable (HCRT) recyclable cylinders in an easy return process with just three steps.
