Expired Flare Collection Program
Roads and Maritime Services' expired marine flare collection program commences on 20 November 2020 and runs to 18 April 2021.
Find a collection point near you to safely dispose of your expired flares.
Most flares have a use-by date of three years and they must be replaced before this time. 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 This collection program provides the boating community with an opportunity to safely dispose of their out of date fares.
The closest collection point to Lane Cove Council is the Trunks Park Boat Ramp, Cammeray, with collections taking place on the following dates:
- Monday, 30 November 2020, 15:30-17:30
- Sunday, 17 January 2021, 15:30-17:30
- Sunday, 18 April 2021, 15:30-17:30
