disposal of out of date flares

i have checked my flares and they ran out in 1999, so they are only 6 years old!!!!!! i was just thinking how should I dispose of them? any ideas

cant put them in the bin

bonfire not a good idea

setting them off on bonfire night would be good but they may be dangerous?

any ideas?

It's an offence to fire flares other than in an emergency, even on land.

You need to take then to your nearest Coastguard station.

Distress flares Des. Remember that when the RNLI and MOD play with them they tend to have the decency to tell polis and coasties what they're doing...........well most of the time anyway

Chris: you're flares aren't six years old: they are six years OUT OF DATE and could be very unsafe. Dispose of them at the next opporchancity.

You can get a dispensation. The RNLI are, unsurprisingly, very familiar with the process!
