How do I dispose of a fire extinguisher?

You would first discharge all the pressure of the fire extinguisher by turning it upside down and pulling the trigger outside in an open area - away from children, pets, and cars. This would discharge the pressure in the fire extinguisher without discharging the chemicals. Once discharged of the pressure, you can dispose the fire extinguisher in your normal household trash.
