There's a small blurb in Backpacker this month about this. Someone has 
built a recycling machine that punctures all types of small propane 
bottles rendering them safe to be recycled with other metals.

So save them and encourage your local recycler, or outfitter to get one 
of these. It also said that interest groups might seek sponsorships from 
corporations etc. to buy one of these. I think cost was about $500.
