Like dealing with old fitness equipment, you’ll soon discover this isn’t something you can just put on the curb for the local trash collection to pick up and haul away. If you do put it on the curb, don’t count on it being hauled away by your local trash collection agency. The reason is simple — the components are largely considered to be hazardous materials, particularly the old gas tank. You could also consider taking it apart and selling the metal for scrap but that’s usually not worth the time and effort.
Disposing of an old or damaged barbecue gas grill is not as simple as merely throwing out the unit. Because of the specific and potentially dangerous nature of typical gas grill components, owners of these barbecue grills can’t simply put the grill out with the normal household trash. Even if you’re trying to be responsible and recycle gas grill parts, certain items, like propane tanks for example, are not suitable for recycling right away like other recyclable materials you may toss. —Do It Yourself.com
If you can’t restore it with a bit of TLC and elbow grease, you’ll have to dispose of it responsibly. That way, you can reward yourself by purchasing a new barbecue grill and testing it out for New Year’s dinner. The trouble with this seeming simple task is much like dealing with old lawn equipment, it’s an unwanted item and it’s tarnished by hazardous chemicals. Here’s some helpful information for how to dispose of an old BBQ grill to get it off your property once and for all:
Remove the tank. The first thing you need to do is to remove the gas tank from the grill. Be sure the valve is shut off, then, disconnect the line from the grill to the tank. If the tank is still in useable condition, you can drop it off at most home improvement stores. If it isn’t, then it’s got to be recycled.
Dismantle the grill. Although this will take a little time, it’s absolutely necessary. You’ll need to dismantle the entire grill, including removing the cooking grate, rock gate, igniter, and burner assembly, as well as any other components.
Recycle the parts. All those parts (the cooking grate, rock gate, igniter, and burner assembly) should be taken to a recycling center. If you have curbside recycling pick up in your area, put them in the appropriate recycling containers. If there isn’t a recycling pick up service in your area, you’ll need to take it to a recycling center yourself.

We have all been there. You put your prized and seasoned grill away in the Fall perfectly seasoned with years of Burgers and Brats having left behind the perfect thin layer of grease all over your BBQ Grill... Old reliable, many good times and tailgates behind you together... Low and behold you go to untuck her that first nice Spring day and BAM it hits you like a Mack truck, poor Suzy rusted out during the winter!
Before you dispose of an old BBQ grill, think about reviving it for continued use. You can disassemble it with a few common hand tools, then simply purchase replacement parts. You’ll need a new cooking grate, rock gate, igniter, and burner assembly. The whole process will take a few hours, about half a day to complete. But, if your old barbecue grill is simply beyond saving, then you need to dispose of it.
