Photo: RMS The Expired Marine Flares Collection Program for the 2019-20 boating season will start in November 2019. Dates and collection locations can be viewed in the table below.
Flares signal that you are in trouble and provide an exact location for searching aircraft or vessels. Only ignite them when rescuers are in view. More information about flares.
It is an offence to set off flares except in an emergency
Most flares have a use-by date of three years and they must be replaced before the expiry date. Flares contain explosive matter which makes safe and legal disposal difficult. This collection program provides the boating community with an opportunity to safely dispose of their out of date fares.
