Disposal of out of date flares

HM Coastguard no longer provides a routine service for the safe disposal of out of date flares. Other possible options are listed below:

  • Check with your flare supplier-they will often be prepared to take them back.
  • A local liferaft service agent should be able to help, as they dispose of flares on a regular basis.
  • Check with your local port or marina as they may have disposal arrangements.

You must NOT dump flares in:

  • Household rubbish
  • Garden waste
  • Public litter bins

It is an offence to dump flares at sea
