Expired flares to be collected at Lions Park
Marine Rescue Central Coast has urged local boat owners to dispose of expired flares through a disposal program with a local collection point.
Expired flares will be collected this Friday, January 15, at the Lions Park boat ramp, North Burge Rd, Woy Woy.
Expired Marine Flare Disposal Program is run by Transport for NSW Maritime to help boaters dispose of expired marine flares, according to the Marine Rescue group.
"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"This collection program provides the boating community with an opportunity to safely dispose of their out of date flares."
