Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

How to dispose of out of date flares?

I have some out of date inshore flares to dispose of but not sure how?

 

Any advice would be appreciated

Please note they only accept pyrotechnics from recreational water users and disposal is by appointment only so please phone in advance.

When you phone, please be ready to give details of the type, quantity, age and condition of your time-expired pyrotechnics.

Legal notice

It is an offence to dispose of flares at sea or in the general refuse, or to let flares off in a non-distress situation.

 

 

 

The above lifted from the RNLI website.  I have disposed of flares here but you do need to phone in and make an appointment

Hi All,

 

Disposed of my out of date flares today at the Poole RNLI Gatehouse.

They just required  my Surname and 24hrs notice.

No hassle they  just locked them into a steel box outside for safe disposal.

 

Could not be easier
