RE: [GreenYes] Expired fire extinguishers questions

Every fire extinguisher I've owned over the years could always be
"recharged"  at local fire extinguisher dealers.  Sure, they'd always try to
sell me a new one but never refused to recharge the old one.  I hope fire
extinguishers don't suffer the same fate as mouse traps where they're so
inexpensive people would rather toss them than recharge or recycle them.

Good luck.
