You can dispose of out-of-date flares at temporary collection points located at boat ramps along the NSW coast. The collection program begins on Wednesday 4 January 2017.

Most flares have a use-by date of 3 years and must be replaced before their expiry date, or penalties apply. 

Visit the Transport for NSW website to find out when collection will occur in your area.
