ROSCO GAS accepts all major company cylinders for exchanges.
Ensure that you purchase your cylinder from an authorised distributor.
The cylinder must be sealed with a seal and the description on the seal should match the name on the cylinder.
Please also note that prices on-line are indicative only and for household customers.
Business and contract customers will be invoiced at their agreed rates.
LPG cylinder exchange process:
The LPG industry has adopted a general practice for the EXCHANGE of LPG cylinders to allow consumers and LPG users to swap one brand of LPG cylinder for another.
However, this arrangement only applies to LPG cylinders owned by LPG
marketers (suppliers) who provide their cylinders to the market on a loan
basis, against the payment of a refundable cylinder deposit.
This provides greater accessibility of LPG to consumers and allows users the ability to switch between suppliers, should they need to.
The exchange process requires that certain opposition cylinders that come into the possession of LPG suppliers as a result of the exchange practice are returned to each competitor company and visa versa.
Cylinders that can be accepted for exchange on a full for empty basis are
– Oryx/BP – Easigas – Totalgaz - Air Liquide/Fedgas – Solgas – Reatile – Indigas - Gas Power - Hayden Gas
Cylinders that CAN NOT BE accepted:
Cylinders that cannot be accepted for exchange are LPG cylinders that are not party to the cylinder exchange arrangement and cylinders that are not identifiable.
9Kg cylinders that have been purchased by consumers (not refundable deposit cylinders) and are filled by retail cylinder fillers, like gas dealers, hardware stores and retailers.
These 9kg size brands are:- Cadac – ALVA – Totai - Outback
6Kg or smaller and includes the following brands:
Small privately owned - camping owned cylinders
- Cadac – Alva – Totia – Kellerman – Apex - Howling Moon - CI Caravans - Handigas 4.5kg – Outback
