Disposal of expired marine flares
Flares (pyrotechnics) are valid only for four years from their date of manufacture, which is printed on each flare. They are one of six items not accepted by Clean Harbors. To dispose of flares, take them to Sarnia Police Services, 555 Christina Street North in Sarnia.
Lambton OPP recommends boaters keep expired flares in a sealed plastic bag beneath new flares. The expired flares may work in times of emergency although they may have lost some of their certified ranges. Use them as backup of the new flares fail to attract attention during emergencies.
