	REI recycles the canisters if you bring it to them.  I had
the same question in mind earlier this year and called up their
1-800-684-7842 customer service number.  The lady rep told me
they are recyclable at REI.  I don't know if you have one close
or not.  I am saving my canisters so that when I have a boxfull I can
drive all of 6 hours to Houston and recycle them at REI.

	Good luck and happy hiking.
