After depleting their existing reservoirs, customers roll the empty cylinders to Altogas headquarters, where technicians safely replenish them with new, fresh supplies.

Each purchase helps fund programs that help people with barriers to employment find work, and the stores themselves serve as a training site for participants to gain work experience.
